Arabic Typesetting Using QuarkXpress Apr 14, 2007

Hi, typeseeting Arabic in QuarkXpress represents a serious problem for Quark users. To typeset Arabic into Quark you should use Arabic Extension as you found, ArabicXT, but it is not for free it will afford you some amount of money.

Otherwise, you can overcome this problem using a simple solution, typeset Arabic in Adobe Illustrator, make the Arabic text outlined, and import the outlined EPS into Quark.
Many clients know this solution and work on it. It is perfect but not all clients accept that.

Regards
