I have bought Arabic fonts in the past from different vendors, most of them were well written and had not many problems in using them.
Since many of my students in InDesign training are an ex-Quark users, they still have AXt fonts from that workflow. Students usually raise the AXt questions whether they can be utilized or not on Adobe products specially InDesign.

I requested from one student to bring these fonts for trial, which he did. On my first test I exported to PDF from InDesign, there were missing letters, the same 3 or 4 letters in all occurance dissapeared in the pdf. I printed the file to PS and distilled it, the result was good, all letters appeared fine.
I used 3 different AXt fonts in the test, just one was misbehaving when exported to pdf.

my question would be, if any one have used AXt, what is the compatibility of these fonts with Adobe ME or international products? Who makes them? Why some letters dissapear upon export and comes fine through distiller?

salam,
Well, AXT fonts are used with an application named "Al Rassam Al Araby", so u need to type ur text on this application then copy that text and past it into any application that doesn't support arabic.. that why if u are using any adobe ME you need to put the text as english or french text not as arabic text: in that way u will never see missing letters !
for any more explanation mail admin at tuniclick dot com

Adobe stopped supporting AXT fonts since CS6. There are good alternative OpenType fonts which I advise you bying instead.
