I am a new subscriber and since updating thee OS to Catalina I can not write in Arabic in Adobe CC apps.

Is there a solution soon as most of my work is in Arabic?

You say three apps. Which three apps, and which exact version of each app (please do not say "latest")?

 

Please say what happens when you select an Arabic font and PASTE Arabic?

Adobe applications can still handle Arabic well under Mac OS Catalina. Just to be sure, kindly open Illustrator and see if you have the "Right-to-Left" set of tools?

Let us know if the above tools aren't there so I can guide you to further steps.

Thanks. There was a typo. I meant (the OS) not three!

When I select an Arabic font, it types it left to right.

We wanted to know at this stage whether you have appropriate Adobe applications that support Arabic properly, did you check if you have ME type tools in Illustrator or InDesign like I explained up in the illustration?
