Hello~ friend,
I want to get the file what you have linked for download but it's not valid.
Then if you can please send the files to settle for Indesign CC.

Thanks very much for the tip on getting Sinhala to appear in the list of languages in InDesign. This was required to get a 'dyu' conjunct to work properly.
