Hello

I have installed Adobe Indesign and I could not use Arabic font although I installed it according to instructions.
How
I copied the font and paste it in the font folder that is in the folder of Indesign CS. This is according to instructions.
Letters appear like this: -
ي ع ت ب ر ع ل م ا ل ت ر ج م ة
Arabic font should appear like this: -
بعتبر علم الترجمة
That happens in the file that was sent to me from the company
But
when i open new file of INDD , then, arabic letters do not appear at all.
So, what is the problem?

Thanks

The standard (western) InDesign does not work with right-to-left languages. You must have the Meddle East version of Adobes applications to be able to write Arabic.

Are you prepared to spend more money? Jul 15, 2006

I use Adobe Indesign CS Middle Eastern Version for Windows. It is a hefty investment, believe me, but well worth it.
