Geeza Pro default Persian font, I believe works fine. However, Roya, Nazli, IranNastaliq are not connecting the individual characters. Any suggestions? I do not know. I just tested them and they work fine. Please try again using a different setting. Try TextEdit or LibreOffice instead. The font can still be downloaded by clicking the title font name on top or the thumbnail below it. I have already enabled Farsi both on Windows 7 and on MS-Word but I am not able to open any of the zip files or fonts in Windows 7. The Farhood font is the only one which is not in a zip folder. I really like these fonts and would appreciate any tips to help resolve this issue.

Neither we had any role in creating them. So most probably there is an issue in your computer. Hi — link to Iran Nastaliq goes to a server that is no longer there. Is there an alternative link?

Dina says:. April 15, at pm. Maryam says:. Baher Esmat: if you follow the OpenOffice. Try them out and let us know. So happy to have found your site. I have the same problem Baher has.
The only option that has worked so far is NeoOffice. Would very much prefer OOo or Word. Any suggestions? Baher Esmat: Thanks for sharing! On my mac, it worked from the beginning, and with a standard font. So thank you.
As a general rule, any open-source application comes in a ton of languages. Especially with software that boasts such an immense community behind it, language will never be a problem. Not only can you install the Arabic version of GIMP, but you can also install the standard English version, and then type in Arabic inside. Therefore, when you change the flag in the bar across the type to the Arabic language flag thus changing the input to the Arabic keyboard , X11 recognizes that and lets you write in Arabic in any of the applications that are running on it in this case, GIMP.
It can open Word files fairly well, but mostly works with rtf. It might even be a better option than OpenOffice. Thanks for putting this information together. I was able to get an Arabic doc to display correctly using it! You are a genuis!! Thank you for showing me how to set up the Arabic document on my new Macbook. I just spent 40 min. Thank you for your generosity! Mona: Thanks for your kind words! Glad I could be of help.
I say that because the huge majority of representatives working for the Apple resellers in Egypt are well aware of the Arabization process. In fact, when they sell you a MacBook, they offer bootleg copies of all the software you can think of, and help set them up and get your new laptop to work in Arabic!
I use mac os x There are other programs available that you can use. I recommend OpenOffice. I am using NeoOffice 3. By some miracle it worked for a bit with Arabic numbers then back again to Hindi. Any systematic way it could work? So in fact, the correct and standard way of writing Arabic would include Hindi numbers. Let us know how it goes. Some of them are rather for Farsi, but they work great for Arabic scripting, and they all have italics, bold, and bold italics.
Even if I have left aligned and the writing is right-to-left Arabic script, the Arabic numbers come up to the left, which makes everything less professional. Any help you can offer would be much appreciated.
Can I install the trial ME version of Illustrator in addition to the version I already have installed or will that cause problems do you think? Also I heard from a not very reliable source that CS5 now supports Arabic. Presumably that is not true? I tried after reading your post. I used both TextEdit and OpenOffice. So I just aligned my Arabic text to the right. The only hint that I was in selection mode was the cursor disappearing from the screen when using the mouse. On the other hand, when using the keyboard to move into the text or to select text, it looks like nothing happens, but it does.
Well if you find something that helps with numbering and bullet points etc, pls do post something. MANY, many thanks! I am an Arabic student at the University and I could not have used my computer for study without this aid. I would like to add the following fonts that also work nicely and join the arabic letters; damascus and Abadi MT condensed light and Abadi MT condensed Extra Bold. Only problem I see with spread sheet is how to get column A to appear on the right of the screen?
Thanks you all have been a big help. You manually choose to type right-to-left and is very fluent. I have a keyboard with only a latin layout meaning no Arabic letters drawn on the keys. So for shakl in general, you have to type the letter first, then the shakl. Could you please suggest a method.
Thank you. Intellark is a novel and smart way to typing in Arabic and Urdu.

Hi Tarek, thanks for all the information you posted and the program you suggested. I have tried and followed all the steps you have here and when I try to copy a text in Arabic to this new program, the letters are still separated…… I have also tried to change the source language but still not working. Could you help me out please?? It is possible to write with iworks arabic and it will get connected, but you need a font file that holds data for connecting letters.. I have one called albayan. I have tried several programs on my mac and found out, that the best MS office alternative is neooffice, it is on mac appstore, it works perfectly, and allows you to save in doc, rtf, and many other formats that you prefer.
I do not write or speak arabic but deliver training which has been translated into arabic for me, both word docs and powerpoints. But all my material was prepared on a wp and, after transfer to my Mac air, the arabic is garbled. Does Open Office allow my Mac to unscamble the garble or just allow someone to type arabic which I do no wish to do.
Any advcie and help gratefully received. Dear Tarek, Dear everyone, has anyone made any experiences with Arabic and Scrivener? I am on Mavericks and will wait a bit with upgrading to Yosemite. Also do you possibly have any advice on OCR for Arabic that actually works? Is this maybe an option? Thanks a million for your time!! Dear Friends, can any one help me in this. The letters are separate between each other. What can I do.
