Can you tell us what is the font you're using? Some Arabic fonts may be limited to the Hindi digits ١٢٣٤

Test with Arial or Time New Roman to understand below technique:

When you type numerals, change your dictionary (drop list found in Character panel) to English or French don't leave it to Arabic. This technique is fast but not recommended.

The ideal way is to control your digits by accessing the option found in the Character Panel's fly-out menu…
