Arabic doesn't export well to .csv from the response collection window - bug
I created a form in Acrobat DC Pro, distributed and collected the form successfully. In the collection window, Any field filled up in Arabic shows up properly – see screenshot (Collected-results-with-Arabic.jpg).
However when I export all results to .csv format so I can compare all results, any Arabic text will display as dots – see screenshot (arabic-in-excel.jpg)
I performed all above steps on Mac and Windows using Acrobat Pro DC 15.23.20056.213124 with similar results
Arabic text should be readable in the exported .csv file
Arabic text is converted to dots upon exporting all data from the form collection window.
I have the same dot issue with Arabic field content when exporting to csv file then excel. Have you solved this issue or gotten any solution for it .... thank you

I feel that response collection window is build on Flash. If so, then this may be why it cannot handle Arabic well I wonder!
