You can find the toolbars in $fmhome\fminit\WorkSpaces\

You can find the direction toolbar for e.g. unstructured FrameMaker in the WYSIWYG View here:

$fmhome\fminit\WorkSpaces\UnStructured\WYSIWYGView\toolbars\direction.xml

However, this file might be overwritten with a user specific one:

C:\Users\<YourUserNamer>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\FrameMaker\13\WorkSpaces\Structured\WYSIWYGView\toolbars\direction.xml

It's better to edit the user one.

Looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<FMTOOLBARLIST version="1">
    <TOOLBAR id="tb_dir" name="#amp;Direction Toolbar" kbd-shortcut="\!vq" orientation="horizontal">
        <ACTION command="DocDirectionLTR">
            <images base="P_LTR"/>
        </ACTION>
        <ACTION command="DocDirectionRTL">
            <images base="P_RTL"/>
        </ACTION>
        <ACTION command="NumberUtilityITN">
            <images base="P_ATE"/>
        </ACTION>
        <ACTION command="NumberUtilityNTI">
            <images base="P_ETA"/>
        </ACTION>
        <SEPARATOR/>
        <FLYOUT command="DirectionSymbols">
            <images base="P_Arabic_Symbols"/>
        </FLYOUT>
    </TOOLBAR>
</FMTOOLBARLIST>

You can customize this toolbar (by editing this direction.xml file and the other direction.xml files for other view modes). However, as far as I can see there is a NumberUtilityITN/NTI, but no NumberUtilityFTN/NTF. That is, while there is a function to convert N to Indic Numbers and back, there is no such function for N to Farsi and back (yet).

Thank you Stefen so much for your reply so can we add this function (FTN/NTF) to our direction.xml like below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<FMTOOLBARLIST version="1">

  <TOOLBAR id="tb_dir" name="#amp;Direction Toolbar" kbd-shortcut="\!vq" orientation="horizontal">

    <ACTION command="DocDirectionLTR">

      <images base="P_LTR"/>

    </ACTION>

    <ACTION command="DocDirectionRTL">

      <images base="P_RTL"/>

    </ACTION>

  <ACTION command="NumberUtilityITN">

      <images base="P_ATE"/>

    </ACTION>

  <ACTION command="NumberUtilityNTI">

      <images base="P_ETA"/>

    </ACTION>

    <ACTION command="NumberUtilityFTN">

      <images base="P_FTE"/>

    </ACTION>

<ACTION command="NumberUtilityNTF">

      <images base="P_ETF"/>

    </ACTION>

<SEPARATOR/>

    <FLYOUT command="DirectionSymbols">

      <images base="P_Arabic_Symbols"/>

    </FLYOUT>

  </TOOLBAR>

</FMTOOLBARLIST>

Well, as I wrote, there is currently no NumberUtilityNTF / NumberUtilityFTN yet. So, in theory, your code is perfectly fine and as it should be – if there would be a function for that.

I have forwarded the need for such an NTF/FTN converter to the product team.

Question: Do you need this to post-edit translations of FrameMaker documents that were authored in a western language? Or do you also author in Farsi?

Thank you Stefan for all your effort and clarification, I got it now .

Yes, I need this function only in Farsi files so I can edit the numbers inside the Farsi text to be Farsi not English (Numeric). I can do this edit in Arabic text by this function (N-To-I).

May be another function can do this edit but I don't know but I tried more to find out any solution but I can't in Farsi files.

I think we need to do this function for all languages that use another numbers view like (Arabic, Farsi, Thai and etc.) (only note)

I think these functions ([A-Z]-to-Abjad / Abjad-to-[A-Z] and [A-Z]-to-Alif-ba-ta / Alif-ba-ta-to-[A-Z] converter) will be useful for all users that work Arabic language.

By the way, do you think that [A-Z]-to-Abjad / Abjad-to-[A-Z] and [A-Z]-to-Alif-ba-ta / Alif-ba-ta-to-[A-Z] converter would be useful as well?
