Hello. I am trying to type or copy paste text into Adobe Acrobat Pro from "content editing" - "edit text and images" section. However, the last punctuation marks appear on the left of the screen like the image below. If I type numbers they appear in Arabic like the second picture. The font switches from "Minion Pro" to "Arial" on its own. Can anyone help?

It works with me when I turn off "Hindi Digits" THEN paste my text, or type a new text. Make sure your OS keyboard input language is English.

Punctuation showing at the wrong end of the sentence and Hinidi numerals are basically controlled by the two preference options I illustrated earlier.

Hindi Digits is turned off & the input language of my OS is English.

This only solves the issue of numbers showing in Arabic. Now they show in English. But the punctuation mark problem is not gone.

Do you think this might be due to the fact that the original pdf was not created by me and was sent by mail?
