Thanks for the update. But that does not explain why Hindi Wikipedia has no issues even if it is using the same font!

Yes. All browsers are affected. It means this is O/S related bug.

The problem is still there even if safe mode is enabled. The problem can be seen on the entire page and is not limited to heading tag.
It makes it very difficult to read the text.

shantanuo added a project to T285590: Half R rendering problem with fonts in PDF books in Devnagari scripts: Wikimedia-Site-requests.

I am adding "Wikimedia-Site-requests" project tag so that someone will change the default font from "FreeSerif" to "Noto Serif Devnagari" on Marathi and Hindi wikisource. I have requested - but the admins are not interested.

One of the steward answered saying "If their admins not convinced, we cannot do anything either". This is very surprising reply. It means local admins (who are not capable of understanding the basic issues like this) are the last and final authority! The number of actitve contributors is so low that the elections are a joke. I am happy that I learned a lesson not to waste time by raising issues or writing on wikipedia.

Can someone change the font from "FreeSerif" to "Noto Serif Devnagari" on all sites using devnagari script? For e.g. hindi language...

Yes, this looks OK. But on Marathi Wiki-source site, I can see Indic OCR and Google OCR both of which are merging the columns incorrectly. Please add Tesseract to the site so that 2 column text can be processed.

If the OCR software can read 2 columns text on english wikisource correctly, why does it merge the columns into one when it reads Marathi/ hindi pages?

When the bug T288782 was fixed, it resolved this issue automatically. :)

Great. Thanks for that information. But the end-user may not know how to purge cache. Most of the users won't even know what cache mean. :) Please make it a default parameter if possible.

The page mentioned in this thread is working OK. But the previous page has this problem...

I am getting the same error that translates as "error: no such index".

The same is the case with english wikisource. Even if I use different fonts, it generates exactly the same PDF. It says "Choose from 204 available fonts." but uses only one.

The generated PDF after using Noto Sans Devanagari font represents Half R incorrectly. No matter which font I select, it is generating exactly the same PDF. Shouldn't the content look in different style when I change the font?

When was the bug T290053 introduced? When I posted this report, the PDF was getting generated correctly. The "Half R" rendering was the only problem. Now there is no PDF :(

It has not solved my problem. I can not remove the "Download" button (shown in the image mentioned above) because that allows to download all the transcluded pages - while "Download this page" link in the left navigation bar will download only the current page. The display is correct for the link but the full book is not included, while the big blue "Download" button will download all the pages in PDF version but that is not legible due to this bug.

Is this happening on hiwikisource or mrwikisource?

Both. I have not checked but I guess also on Gujarati and other Asian languages like Bengali. (T258124 ?) I have requested the authority on marathi wikisource to change the default font.

shantanuo changed the subtype of T285590: Half R rendering problem with fonts in PDF books in Devnagari scripts from "Task" to "Bug Report".

The "Download" buttons points to the incorrect font. But "export to PDF" option available on the same page uses the correct font as shown in this image...

I appreciate your guidance. I am trying to report an issue that I am facing on Marathi Wikisource. There is an option to download pages in PDF format. But…
