Adobe's SING architecture answers a requirement of "gaiji" for Japanese, Chinese, and Korean typography. The term "gaiji" is a Japanese word meaning "supplemental glyph" or "supplemental character." In this context, it means: Any character or glyph that is valid in your written language, but is not in the font you are using. The SING architecture provides a way for users to extend their fonts with individual new "glyphlets," representing variant glyph shapes, or symbols. These glyphlets are embedded in documents and can be used for editing at other points in the workflow.
This download is a Technology Preview of the SING gaiji technology, to let customers and developers begin to evaluate the SING architecture. It extends Adobe® InDesign® CS_J and provides some glyphlets for the Adobe Kozuka Mincho typeface family as well as a Glyphlet Management Tool.
Note: This Technology Preview is not supported by Adobe; it is for evaluation only. You must have the Japanese version of Adobe InDesign CS, and a Japanese-capable operating system, to install and use it. We invite you to report any problems or other feedback you have by submitting them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our Product Management and Quality Assurance teams review this information, and improvements you suggest may be incorporated into future releases. (Please note that you will receive an e-mail confirming receipt of your feedback but that you may not receive any other information.)

The SING Gaiji Technology Preview is an extension of InDesign CS Japanese version. Therefore, you must first install InDesign CS-J, using an InDesign CS-J serial number.
We recommend using this Technology Preview on Japanese versions of the operating system. However, it also runs on U.S. versions of Windows XP with the Japanese language support enabled. For the Windows installer and uninstaller to run correctly on a non-Japanese version of the operating system, you must set the Language for non-Unicode Programs to Japanese. Select Control Panel > Date, Time, Language and Regional Options >Language and Regional Options >, then click the Advanced tab, and under the Language for non-Unicode Programs menu, select Japanese and click OK. You will need to restart Windows. You can then run the installer successfully. After the SING Gaiji Technology Preview is reinstalled, you can reset the Language for non-Unicode Programs to English (United States) and still use the SING Gaiji Technology Preview.
The SING Gaiji Technology Preview is provided in a compressed archive file: SING_tech_preview_W_1_0.exe.
Download the archive file to your hard disk. Double-click the archive file to uncompress it. On Windows, the installer runs automatically. You do not need a serial number to install the SING Gaiji Technology Preview.
