I am typing in sanskrit, so, when typing in roman alphabet I need some supplements like ā ṣ ḥ ś ī.
My font for the Roman alphabet is DV1-TTGanesh. When installing it (I have the copyright version), it says in the specification that it contains the Latin-1 supplement that covers those characters.
The thing is that when I write with that font, everything is ok until I try to use one of those letters that is composed of a dot and vocal, for example ī . Then, the font changes to Helvetica, for example.
At first I thought that the font didn't have those characters, and that was why it was changing the font.
But I figure out, that is not true. The reason is that I opened a text already written by another person, using DV1-TTGanesh, and those letters composed of 2 things, are nicely in the correct font, and are not changing.
So meanwhile, I have to copy the letter I need and paste everytime from one document to another.
So my question is, where are those letters? How can I find out how to write them? I use the keyboard screen but they are not there. There are just showing the elements separately.
