    indesign server scripting, export pdf, arab chars, right to left

    zyberkid

      i'm using indesign server scripting(vb.net) for exporting the pdf, for the arabic chars after exporting the charecters get reversed.

       

      actual: 144 عدد الصفحات       (google translate )

       

      after placing in indesign textframe, after exporting it becomes like

       

       

      144 طويخلا ددع .

       

      you can see it is exactly opposite. it should be mirrored and right to left.

       

       

      i've tried below options,

       

      with changeTextPreference

      .DigitsType = InDesignServer.idDigitsTypeOptions.idArabicDigits
                                  '.Justification = InDesignServer.idJustification.idRightJustified
                                  '.ParagraphDirection = InDesignServer.idParagraphDirectionOptions.idRightToLeftDirection
                                  '.CharacterDirection = InDesignServer.idCharacterDirectionOptions.idRightToLeftDirection
                                  '.ParagraphJustification = InDesignServer.idParagraphJustificationOptions.idArabicJustification
                                  '.KeyboardDirection = InDesignServer.idCharacterDirectionOptions.idRightToLeftDirection
                                  '.Kashidas = InDesignServer.idKashidasOptions.idDefaultKashidas

       

      please help me out.
