Re: feedback wanted for new devanagari font

Thanks Jonas, 

I appreciate you spotted that typo.

The project has been renamed to Sumana Devanagari,  since the vertical
metrics in Lora Devanagari and Lora are different,  and will continue
to develop under this repo:

Nice name change :-)

README.md contains a typo: Sankrit → Sanskrit.

Have you managed to solve the PDF rendering issue?

Seems you misunderstood: Pavithran pointed out that the PDF _you_
produced seems to have an issue with rendering the fonts correctly.
Seems most sensible that _you_ try update your system and re-render that
PDF :-)

I see now. I’m on Mac OS 10.10.1, and I used Adobe Indesign CS6 to generate the PDF. 
At the moment I am working though the many comments I received from 
a native expert, and will produce a new PDF, once they are amended. 
Will make sure system is updated. 
The past months I have learned a bunch about XeLaTeX, and Pavithran's
comment did provoke me to try create a test page, attached this email

Can some of you suggest a nice devanagari text to use for such demo
page? - preferrably something related to flowers.
I am attaching a PDF with Hindi / Marathi / Nepali. 
The texts are from wikipedia, but unrelated to flowers. 
hope this helps
