Hi, I'm using Illustrator to write in hebrew.

I already turned on the option "Show Indic Options" yet, even though now I write in hebrew, the punctuations are backwards.. so for example: Hello! becomes !Hello.

When i check the paragraph options, the option "middle east & south asia" is selected.. so why does it still reverse the punctuations?

I don't have any experience with Middle-Eastern versions, but it could be the case that it didn't get installed.

 

Do you need the en_us version at all? If not I would suggest that you uninstall it. Then set the Creative Cloud app to the language you need and then install.

Illustrator is very peculiar with versions. When you have multiple languages installed then the system language decides whether Illustrator launches in English or Middle-Eastern.

You could check in your user folder if there are multiple Illustrator languages installed. Either in the Illustrator Preferences folder or in the Application support folder you would be seeing that.

They are in your user folder.

You will find subfolders with languages in them. If there is more than one language then you have multiple languages installed and it will get tricky.

So there is a folder called "en_US". Is there also a folder for a different language on that same level in your system?

Wow... it was litteraly the solution... even though I change the language at the settings and it DID update Illustrator to the middle east settings.. I still had to un-install and install it all over again for the punctuations to work..

 

Adobe should fix this problem.

 

Thanks for your help!
