How to resolve Arabic language when to convert from Pdf to PowerPoint

Regrettably, Acrobat's export of PDF to any Microsoft Office format does not properly handle right-to-left languages. This includes Arabic, Farsi, and Hebrew. Assuming the proper font (or at least a substitute font supporting the proper glyphs) is used in the export, generally, the text will appear “backwards” in terms of the glyph order in the text.

 

Numberous customers (including some Adobe employees) have complained about this shortcoming for a number of years. Since these communities are not monitored by Adobe product development, the proper place to express your request for right-to-left language support in PDF export to Office is at https://acrobat.uservoice.com/forums/590923-acrobat-for-windows-and-mac.

This is not an issue associated with the Adobe Fonts service. Moving this posting to the Acrobat community.
