In Word 2003 one has the option of choosing displaying/editing Hindi numerals. But in Powerpoint (same release) one can only display/edit Arabic numerals.

In the Options Menu there is no tab for Complex Scripts, and under fonts the complex script option is for general font choice.

So far none of my clients has insisted on Hindi numerals in the PPT presentations that I have translated.

I am trying to seek a workaround to enable me do this in case such a request is made.

I have searched the MS Knowledgebase for possibilities but all refer to numeral formatting in Word.

Does this mean we are stuck with the Arabic display irrespective of the context of the text?

Hindi numbers inside MS PPT 2003 Jul 20, 2006

Greetings... ahalan wa sahalan...

The "Hindi" numbers are available inside MS PPT 2003, but you need to go this route in the tool bar:

INSERT => SYMBOL => scroll down the matrix displayed until you find the number you want to insert, then click and insert where you want on your working page.

Cumbersome procedure, but it works.

Hope this helps.

Khair, in shaa' Allah.

Manipulate "Regional Settings" from control Panel to set numbers the format you like.

Kind regards
