I've download the font Rubik in arabic language from Google Fonts and copy-paste a sentence in arabic from gmail. Illustrator displays the font wrong while checking this same font in text edits and displays it correctly. The same happend with Baloo_Bhaijaan_2 and Lalezar, both from Google Fonts... Any help?

Have you thought of installing the Middle Eastern (ME) version of Illustrator to finish this Arabic project? You know you can keep the existing copy of Illustrator, while using the ME version for any Arabic projects. 

It maybe a hassle to have two Illustrator copies, one for let's say English projects, and the new copy for Arabic projects which can be removed (uninstlled) when you finish with it.

 

1. In your Adobe Creative Cloud application, access your account found on the top-right corner.

Have you enabled "Show Indic Options" under Edit > Preferences > Type and chosen "Middle Eastern & South Asian Single-Line Composer" under Windows > Paragraph > panel menu?

Hello @Maria380421274nza,

We understand that technical issues can be frustrating. I hope thatsmauri's suggestions helped resolve the problem. If not, kindly try installing the MENA version of Illustrator by following the steps in this help article (https://adobe.ly/3VF81xr) and sharing your observations.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks,

Anubhav

Thanks! But by doing this I'm changing the language from all my CC

While most of the time I design in neglish or spanish, I don't think that this will be that convenient. Will the installation of the arabic illustrator replace the english version I'm already using?

Hi! Thanks for your answer.

My Edit menu doesn't display the "preferences" option that you mentioned (I attached screenshot).

And I don't have the option that it's mentioned in your link (Screenshot attached).

Any other clue, please? Many thanks!

Hi!

 

Ah, under macOS you should see the "Preferences" option when you click on "Illustrator" (on the left of "File")!

My bad, I was assuming you were using Windows as well... 😅

 

Have you found it now? 🙂

Thanks!

I don't have the option "Middle Eastern & South Asian Single-Line Composer". However, I picked the options I have but the font still not working. I checked the same font in notepad and works ok 😕

So, the problem is Illustrator. I attached a screenshot. Many thanks!

The option "Middle Eastern & South Asian Single-Line Composer" is in the Paragraph panel menu.

You need to click on the  icon (which I have circled in red) to find it:

 2. In the pop-up window (your account) click the "Apps" option on the left pane

3. Choose "English يدعم العربية" in order to download a copy of Illustrator with more Arabic support options. Click "Done" button.

4. Click on the three elipses, from the drop-list

5. Choose any of the older versions available. Note, you cannot install the same version which exists already on your machine, that's why you need to choose even a little older copy from the list.

6. Click "Install" for the version you've selected

We cannot have two of the same version of any Adobe application installed on the machine, hence, we need to install a little older version as I mentioned in point 5.

I just checked the proess just now to be sure Adobe haven't changed anything, so, I was able to change the Language from Preferences, then downloaded another copy of an older Illustrator… apparently nothing changed, it should work for you too if you follow above six steps… I use a Mac.
