    Why Indesign does not support Reverse Chaining Contextual Single Substitution?

    arifk30354064 Level 1

      We have been using Indesign for years. Its a great desktop publishing tool and support most of our Urdu Nastaleeq fonts except those that use Reverse Chaining Contextual Single Substitution. Now majority of DTPs support this by now, and almost all web browsers have got it working already. So my question is why this particular contextual substitution is not implemented in Indesign yet, despite being a required feature for Opentype Nastaleeq fonts in years?

       

      Here is an example on how Adobe Indesign renders same text vs Microsoft Word:
