Ok so I tried two different fonts (with TFF format), one displayed fine and the other one not. I am attaching the screen-shots, it is in Arabic writing.

Could it be the font, that is just not working?

 

Illustrator is very, very, VERY prissy about fonts. If there is anything wrong with the font, then Illustrator will just not want to work with it.

 

Where did you get these fonts from?

Is Missing glyph protection turned on in the Preferences?

 

Did this happen when you typed the text? Or did you open a file?
