Hello. I just started using Illustrator.
I can write arabic and have arabic keybord added to Windows 10.
In programs such as notepad, word, Edge, the key B becomes "lam-alif" when hit (with keyb changed).
It is the letters L and A (lam alif) combined, a common "fixture".
As I stated - it works fine in any Windows or Linux program, but in Illustrator it gets separated "auto-corrected" and I wonder if this "auto-correction" can be turned of.
Looks fine in AI 2021 (Mac, but Win should be same). What version of AI are you on? ME support was pretty nasty in older versions, so upgrade if you’ve not already done so.
You mentioned لا gets separated, does this issue shows on other Arabic words too?
I'm on Mac, Illustrator supports Arabic for over 20 years. If the separated characters show on all Arabic text, then you need to download Arabic supported version as follows:
