If a character set is not supported by PageStream, please email details to and support can be added for your character set. You may also create a new character set by making a copy of the closest existing character set file in the SoftLogik/CSets folder and modifying it. Save the file in the folder with an appropriate file name. If you do so, please share with other users by sending a copy to us!

In the future, character set support for JIS and other multibyte systems will be introduced. Customers interested in such support should contact us.
