I'm working on a campaign that involves Middle Eastern language. I followed the steps shown in Adobe site: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/arabic-hebrew.html
but letters still don't appeared to be in the right direction especially when other languages (e.g. English) are on the same line. In this case, English got flipped as well. Font I'm using is Graphik Arabic.
In reference to Adobe instructions, I don't see paragraph direction in the paragraph palette nor options to select Righ-to-Left in character palatte. (Pls see attached screenshot)
Is there a separate app in illustrator (for MAC platform) that I need to purchase in order for Arabic text to show up properly?
Your response is greatly appreciated!
So you installed the Arabic version?
I don't have an Arabic version of Illustrator. Just using the standard version of illustrator. Is there version of it in Illustrator?
Thanks for reaching out. Kindly follow the steps shared in this help article (https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/access-install-hebrew-arabic-indesign-illustrator-CC.html) to install the Hebrew/Arabic version of Illustrator and check if it helps.
Looking forward to your response.
Thank you for providing link.
Few questions: Do I need to uninstall my current version? And can I use the Arabic version on non Arabic documentations. It doesn't affect other functions - correct?
Installing Arabic version did the job. Was able to flow text in paragraph and even flip words that are inline.
Thank you much for sharing the link.
