Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. You mentioned that this is happening with Illustrator and Photoshop both apps. It could be a font issue as well. Have you tried with different Arabic fonts or just one? If it is a specific font, would you mind sharing the font information so that we can check it out? Please share version of OS as well.
Looking forward to your response.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

Adobe stopped supporting AXT fonts back in May 2012 when adobe released its Creative Suite 6. The AXT fonts were and are still meant to work with QuarkXpress as an Arabic Extension.

You should look for other fonts such as OpenType fonts that are fully supported in Adobe and Microsoft applications. Many axt users don't know that these axt fonts are poorly developed in a sense that when you export/save to PDF, your PDF is not searchable even though the text is live.
