For all the features you're seeking, you need to install the Middle Eastern version of Adobe Illustrator. You can keep your existing copy of Illustrator which is "International English" for example and have yet another copy of Illustrator that supports Arabic, alternatively, you may remove existing copy of Illustrator from your machine then download a fresh copy with Arabic support.

 

Kindly follow the below steps to have two copies of Illustrator on your machine…

The small option panel, appearing in the attatched image, that presumably toggles the direction of the Arabic font from leftt to right does not appear: And the font/text does not change from english to arabic; even if I select Myriad Arabic or Adobe Arabic; And when I type it does not type as Arabic. I can copy and paste Arabic script but Illustrator does not connect the letters it only displays the individual form of the letters. Also, I can activate symbols from the glyphs panel in sequence and spell words in Arabic, but it is tedious and all of the sysmbols in arabic are not accounted for, such as: The double "fatah" over the "shada" adding the "-an" sound to letter.

 

The additional images are of other options that have not revealed themselves in the Illustrator panels.

 

PS - I have gone to edit>preferences>type, and selected Indic symbols prior to trying to use Arabic in the font panel.

 

thank you

This way you will end up with two versions of Adobe Illustrator on your machine, one of which provides maximum Arabic support.
