Salam Ebrahim,

It appears that you don't have the Middle Eastern (ME) version of Illustrator, The ME version will give you much better Right-to-Left controls for short and long documents.

To be sure tha you have ME version of Illustrator, check if you can see these Right-to-Left type tools…

If you don't have them and wishes to replace your Illustrator with ME version, then check the steps here…

  1. From the Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop menu, click on All Apps to view a list of installed Adobe applications
  2. Click the three ellipses shown beside each installed application
  3. Choose Uninstall to remove the non-Arabic application
  4. Once ALL installed applications have been uninstalled/removed, click on the “Account” icon found on the top-right corner of the Creative Cloud desktop application and choose “Preferences”
  5. In the newly opened Preferences dialogue window, click on “Apps” in the left pane
  6. From the “Default install Language” drop menu choose English يدعم العربية in order to have Arabic support in Adobe applications, then click the “Done” button.
