Howdy,

Sinhala is a complex script, much like Arabic, Urdu, and Devanagari. Unfortunately, Photoshop does not currently support such writing systems, although this is a matter we are currently looking into. In the meanwhile, WinSoft offers a Middle Eastern version of Photoshop with some support for Indic languages.

Thanks,
David

Howdy Mike,

You might want to check out the new Photoshop CS6 public beta! Your problem with Indic scripts might already be solved.

This latest version has fully support for Arabic and Hebrew, as well as limited, unofficial support for many other scripts!

Thanks and enjoy!
