A. Farsido is released under GPL because I want it to be free, stay free and any changes made to it become available to the public for free.
Where can I send donations?
A. Donations in any amount are greatly appreciated. Click here to donate using PayPal.
What will be in the feature versions
A. I am currently working on fixing the bugs, a more user-friendly Persian interface and an online version of the program which you can use without downloading software, except the Java Run-time environment.
How to I install Farsido and Run
A. Download Farsido and open the zip file. There is no configuration required. You can double-click on Farsido.jar and if you have the JRE installed correctly the program will run. If did not run try run.bat and if it didn't work either you should download and install the Java Runtime Environment.
Does Farsido 3.33 Release Candidate
come with fonts?
A. No, but you can get many free fonts on the web. Click here for a detailed list.
How can I convert to Unicode?
A. Save the original text is a normal text file (In Vazhe Negar you should chose "Generic" when saving) and then open that file with Farsido. When the Conversion dialog opens, choose the appropriate System. Now you can either use Save As to save the Unicode text or simply paste it in other programs. Farsido has many conversions but Farsi conversions (Vazhe Negar and Iran System) are at the top.
How can I convert from Unicode?
A. Type or paste your text in Farsido and then click Save. When the Conversion dialog opens, choose the appropriate System. Farsido has many conversions but Farsi conversions (Vazhe Negar and Iran System) are at the top. You can open the file you saved with the appropriate program. Note: You will have problems when you open the resulting text file in Vazhe Negar. You should open the file separately it and paste it in Vazhe Negar.
can't I convert bilingual text to and from Vazhe Negar?
A. Vazhe Negar has an incorrect system that has used English characters for Farsi characters and there is no way to figure which is which.
