Lack of Arabic language option in Creative Cloud Desktop App

I initially had an issue changing the orientation of Arabic text (I have already changed it to Middle Eastern & South Asian Single-Line Composer) on my Illustrator 2020 because it doesn't have a paragraph direction selection option in the paragraph panel. Some Arabic typefaces present well, whilst others will have correct orientation (text direction), but the letters won't connect. I found a community post from earlier this year that suggests re-installing Illustrator 2020 with a language setting change to "English يدعم العربية":https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/illustrator-cc-2020-arabic-text-direction/td-p/10938334?p...

 I tried to implement this, but found no option to change to any kind of Arabic on the Creative Cloud desktop app - it simply doesn't exist. The specs on illustrator says "English and 18 more" under languages, but not one of them is Arabic, or العربية, let alone "English يدعم العربية".

How can I solve this problem? Is there an add-on I need to download that enables Arabic as a language setting option? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

If I change the setting in the CC App to Arabic, I immediately get an Install button for Illustrator (and other apps).

Arabic support is very well available for Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and to some extent few other applications. Check this recent post for Illustrator

I don't have a cog in the top right toolbar to access preferences and change the language. I've looked everywhere, and tried everything. I've even tried looking at changing the operating language (at the bottom), and Arabic doesn't exist. I don't have a cog where I can access preferences to change the languageI don't have a cog where I can access preferences to change the language

Got it - sorry about that. Thank you, Zaid.

I've downloaded the CC app, uninstalled my appplications, changed the language, and reinstalled them. I now have the direction selection option in the paragraph panel and other functions in Illustrator, but the letters for this particular typeface (and a few others) are still not connecting, so I'm going to assume the typeface itself is buggy. Screen Shot 2020-05-11 at 4.26.24 PM.png

My adobe subscirption is for all apps. Thank you again for all of your help and patience with me.

مرحبا يوسف

I'm glad you were able to change the language settings to Arabic Support. Now for the disjointed letters, just make sure to choose one of the Middle Eastern Composers when typing Arabic.

Kindly check full Arabic settings here on the help page.

Hi Zaid, 

 

Im having the same issue. In your answer to Yousif, you mentioned that he should follow the above instructions. For some reason, I dont see the instructions. 

 

Can you please share them here again? 

 

Thank you.

أهلين زيد
Thank you for your reply. The first thing I tried, prior to successfully downloading and changing the operating language on the CC app as per your instruction, was alternating between the Middle Eastern Line Composers, but it still doesn't affect the typeface.

I followed the instructions on the link you just posted for full Arabic settings, and didn't have to change anything really, but it's still disjointed. Like I mentioned in the previous message, I believe it's a buggy/faulty typeface.

Can we know what is the font(s) names you're using, is it possible to share one of the faulty fonts for testing?

Apologies for the delayed reply, Zaid.

I can't seem to find the typeface folders on my computer to upload here. However, their names are 'Mishafi', 'Diwan Thuluth', 'Farisi', and 'Waseem'.

Well, I know Mis-hafi and Diwan will not work under any other environment but theirs. These couple of fonts were created by Diwan to work under Yaqout application.

 

You need to purchase fonts from the vendor only after checking with them that their fonts are compatible with Adobe CC applications.

اخي الكريم زايد انا لدي خطوط كانت تعمل بشكل سليم في فوتوشوب اصدار 2019

بعد ان قمت بتثبيت الاصدار 2020 اصبحت بعض الخطوط تأتي على شكل مربعات

علما ان الخطوط التي بها المشكلة كثيرة وليست قليلة

وهذه بعض منها:

تأكد من ان تحمل اصدار داعم للعربية، فقد يحصل بعض الاحيان ان تقوم بالتحديث فينزل اصدار غير داعم للعربية

انا استعمل فوتوشوب الاصدار الاحدث ٢١.٢ وليست لدي مشكلة بالخطوط العربية ومن ضمنها خطوط جرافيست
