      Hello H T Khuman,

      You need to have Meitei font installed on your machine. Search, download and install “Noto Sans Meitei” font.

    Hello Akash,

    I assume that you want to add PramukhIME as a plugin but don’t want to show the language drop down, help and other buttons to the user. If so, yes, you can use PramukhIME that way as well. You need to remove the button and drop down just like you would do it for any other CKEditor plugin buttons.

    Thank you
