I have all of my text translated and am trying to copy and paste into AEffects. It is reversing the order and not connecting the letters. I'm using the font Din Next LT Arabic. I've changed the language to South Asian and Middle Eastern under Preferences - Type. What am I missing?
I found a website that will flip the letters for me but that is an extra step that seems unnecessary.
You have to create a new text layer when you switch the text engine, you can't use text layers created with the other engine to paste Arabic text. so, create a new text layer, choose an Arabic font, and paste.
I'm not sure what you mean by text engine?
It's what you choose in type preferences:
So if you have a text layer that was created using the Latin text engine, you can't paste Arabic text into it, characters will be separated, that's why when you switch your text engine into Middle Eastern, you have to create a new text layer and paste Arabic text into it
thank you so much! It is working great now.
After placing arabic text click a "reset paragraph" option on Paragraph panel. It will change the order of arabic letters to the right one.
