Please follow above steps as detailed by servitor and Photoshop will behave well with Arabic text
My post here in fact is to ask about your school/university, can I know which one is it? And how come teachers couldn't help you out with this basic, yet important step?
I tried these options above but it doesn't exist in Indesign.
I am not sure how to fix this
If the Paragraph direction and other Middle Eastern features doesn't exist in your InDesign, it is very likely that you don't have the Middle Eastern copy, or you have a quite old InDesign. Kindly provide further information so we can assist you.
i choose middle eastern ans south asian and i click ok.then i go to typr- language- middle eastern option is idle i cannot choose this option kindly tell me how to enable
I've done all the steps and now I am able to type in Arabic on a new document.
However, I purchased a design, and when I try to change the text from English to Arabic
after following all the steps you mentioned, the Arabic is still jumbled and not connected.
I am even unable to change the type to middle easters from photoshop's menu because it
is no highlighted, even though the type from preferences is checked on Middle Eastern.
