Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about this. Would you mind sharing version of the OS & InDesign? Have you installed English Arabic version of the app? Does it happen with a specific file or all? This information would help us assist you accordingly.

Additionally, I'd recommend checking out this help article to know how to write Arabic in InDesign. Hope it helps.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

Do you see the "ME Type Tool" in your tools panel? if not, then you don't have the Arabic supported version, and you need to follow the below steps:

1.jpg

  1. From the Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop menu, click on All Apps to view a list of installed Adobe applications
  2. Click the three ellipses shown beside each installed application
  3. Choose Uninstall to remove the non-Arabic application
  4. Once ALL installed applications have been uninstalled/removed, click on the “Account” icon found on the top-right corner of the Creative Cloud desktop application and choose “Preferences”

  1. In the newly opened Preferences dialogue window, click on “Apps” in the left pane
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the window, from the “Default install Language” drop menu choose English يدعم العربية in order to have Arabic support in Adobe applications, then click the “Done” button.

 

Now you may proceed to install Adobe applications once again.
