  2. Hello,

    I am not able to create the special characters even using combination of ALT key and 0210. I also installed the fonts.
    But not able to create these. I have tried using Firefox and IE.

    When I press the keys, it doesn’t even type anything.

    Am I missing any steps?


    1. Hi Nikhil you have to type some keys and then just press backspace! that will create special characters. Follow this and do let me know.

  3. Hello! I have been using Kiran font since a few years and find it nice to operate. I wish to publish one of my work, which I typed in Kiran. However, my publisher has not been able to convert the file into any other common Devnagari font, generally used for publication of books in Marathi. Is it not possible to convert it? I came to know that Shivaji Font is convertible to Devnagari font like SHREE.
    Pl. write.

    and i think you have to type your entire contents in other publishers font. Because Kiran font is True Type font and its not Unicode font as mentioned in Kiran font official website.

    Thank you!

  5. Cant use special characters using alt key and numeric combination. Tried using your backspace idea also, but of no use. Plz help out on this issue..

    1. Hi Abhijeet,

      you have to keep pressing till last digit say for typing 0200 keep alt key down and then press 0200 and then release alt key. Please check you have selected kiran font from font list while typing. As it works only when kiran font selected in your word processor.
