How do I use Arabic fonts in Adobe applications?

To display Arabic text correctly you will need to activate Adobe’s World Ready Composer.

Indesign:
In Indesign you can do this in the ‘Paragraph’ pane (Window > Paragraph > panel menu) and select ‘Adobe World-ready Paragraph Composer’.

Illustrator:
In Illustrator you can do this in the ‘Paragraph’ pane (Window > Type > Paragraph > panel menu) use ‘Middle Eastern & South Asian Single-line Composer’.

Text Direction
Arabic text has a right to left text direction so you will need to update this setting in the Paragraph panel too.

Further information can be found on Adobe’s software help website here.
