Hi All.

I copied some Urdu text from an Acrobat file to an illustrator (23.1.1) file.
The result is almost perfect except for the brackets being reversed and in the incorrect position.
See Screen Shots attached.

 

The bracket on the left side is easily rectified, but I am unable to move the far right bracket to the far left side where it should be.

Any suggestions?

 

P.S.

I get the same result when opening the Acrobat file in illustrator.

Hi Ashutosh.

Thanks for the response.
I tried the suggested fixes prior to posting my question. They did not work then and they still do not fix my dilemma.
Any other suggestions?

This is definitely related to the Paragraph and Character Direction which can be controlled if you download current or older version of Illustrator with Middle Eastern support.

When on your text click Character, then the three lines on top right of box then check that language is set to arabic, and digits is set to RTL Arabic. Now click paragraph, then the three lines on the top right of the box, check middle eastern single or everyline is selected and right-to-left paragraph dictation is selected. Hope this helps! I was having a nightmare with it also.

Hi Erin.
I'm based in New Zealand, so use the English version. I'm not familiar with the Arabic version.

Cheers.
