          Probably the version of Photoshop you have does not support Arabic. I don't know if there is one that does, actually. Check out WinSoft (http://www.winsoft.com); they make and sell Arabic versions of Adobe software.

Microsoft OpenType fonts that come with the Office XP Proofing<br />Tools such as Arabic Transparent or Traditional Arabic don't work in<br />InDesign 1.5.2 ME. My guess is that Arabic OpenType fonts with GSUB lookups<br />work correctly, while OpenType fonts with GPOS lookups seem not to work.<br /><br />BTW: Thomas certainly means http://www.winsoft.fr/ and<br />http://www.adobeceea.com/<br /><br />There is InDesign 2.0 ME available that may have improved the support for<br />the OpenType fonts so my remarks may not apply.<br /><br />Adam

              Yes, InDesign 2.0 ME does add significantly to the OpenType support for Arabic typesetting.

                If you set the Text Engine option to "Middle Eastern and South Asian" from Photoshop Type preference, users will be able to compose Arabic and Indic text. Photoshop Type preference can be accessed by selecting the menu item: Photoshop-CC/Preference/Type.

                  Seriously Vinod do you think Photoshop 7 or even Photoshop CS (1) back in 2003 had Middle Eastern text engine? back then as Thomas Phinney mentioned all ME version of Adobe products were developed and supported by Wnsoft in France, Adobe didn't support ME products directly.
