Hi there, I'm trying to use different  languages in Illustrator for text labels but when I paste the Korean/Arabic/other language into the text box it all just appears as a bunch of squares. Can anybody help me make the text appear as it should?

    You should always state what platform you are using.


    First you have to click the type tool where you want to past the text  or draw a text box with the text tool and text cursor active you have to select a Korean or Arabic font and then paste.


    Now if That does not work before doing all of he above yu have to enable the Korean or Arabic Input method in the Language and text preferences on a Mac on the PC you will have to search for the proper method of enabling the language kits for Korean and Arabic.


    then do all of the above and it should now work.

    No. For RTL language support you still need the ME versions.

    Right to left. Middle Eastern.


    Arabic works on the Mac without the RTL function but it does paste you have to left justify though.


    I do not believe you loaded the language kit for Arabic the correct way but I do not know how to do it.


    You need to go to a Windows forum for that info.
