How to make Photoshop connect Gujarati characters?


I am using Photoshop CS6.

Recently when I try to type in our local language "Gujarati" via Google Input tools (I tried without Google tools also, with Gujarati fonts), the typed text not showing joined word and characters correctly.

This is how it looks in Photoshop:

It is working correctly everywhere except Photoshop. This is how is should look (typed in Chrome):

To better understand my problem, there is a similar question on Stack Overflow. That problem is for Android and my question is for Photoshop.

I don't know if this works for "Gujarati", it does for other languages:

  1. Make sure you have ligatures turned on:

  2. Check the features of your own language:

  3. In preferences, check you have the right mode (if it's not after changing it restart Photoshop):

Here's the quick solution I've found (I am using Photoshop CC).

Install the Noto Sans Gujarati fonts to your system and then follow these two simple steps.

  1. Go to Preferences > Tools > Middle Eastern and South Asian

    Select Middle Eastern and South Asian

  2. Write anything on Google Translate or any other document like a Word file, then copy the entire text to Photoshop and make sure you've selected Noto Sans Gujarati as displayed in this screenshot:
