It is a significant undertaking when one needs to convert an Arabic/Persian (RTL languages) book into an ePUB. In addition, the software capabilities diminish as the number of readers decreases. The InDesign Development Team has done a decent job making the InDesign 2022, version 17.3 (Eng/AR), work well. However, there is still a lot to accomplish in non-native languages to be processed.
One major issue with InDesign is that the only option for footnotes is using Latin numbers (1,2,3,...). When a book is written in Arabic/Persian, the same kind of numbers are needed (۱، ۲، ۳،...). When creating a print version of the book, the numbers are shown correctly as the font used has the numbers. However, all footnotes are numbered in Latin when the Arabic/Persian text is converted to an ePub. I had to change more than 400 numbers for footnotes in a book with three hundred pages. Is there any way that Development Team can add an option for footnotes to use Persian/Arabic numerals? (Feature Request)
