Arabic script with Fill & Sign
This topic has been discussed before, but I want to share one thing the team might find useful.
Now we tell all Acrobat users that Adobe Fill and Sign doesn't support Arabic. But when you look at it, we are able to type Arabic very well on Desktop machines and mobile devices.
On a Mac for instance, as an Adobe CC subscriber, I have to choose English in Preferences for my Acrobat language in order to show [ Fill & Sign, Send and Track, and Send for Signature ] features in Tools workspace. If I go and change Acrobat language to Arabic, or English with Arabic Support above three features will not be displayed any longer. Here is a discussion on Adobe Forums https://forums.adobe.com/message/7575939#7575939
I cannot test Arabic with Adobe Fill and Sign with Acrobat Language changed to Arabic in Preferences to see if it handles Arabic fully. I bet Acrobat team can do this for us.
To shed light on this issue… as long as I'm within the Fill & Sign environment, I'm able to type and view Arabic that I typed as expected, it is once I leave Fill &Sign environment that Arabic words get fragmented and all characters get disjointed. So could this be to the fact that we must change the Language of Acrobat itself to Arabic so that Fill & Sign to function well? This I cannot verify and test due to he reason I mentioned above that some features will disappear from Acrobat upon selecting Arabic for language.

Wow Adobe. Really. It's 2023, this should've been integrated back in 2010! This is crazy how you can't add such a simple feature to join the words like every other word processor does in the world.

It is ridiculous that in 2023, we still cannot write from right to left correctly.
Guys, Don't waste your valuable time on this. This issue we have complained about since 2018. It can be fixed easily. but They don't want to .that for sure. Maybe it is racism.
I recommend you convert to alternative software.

I got the premium subscription but still facing the same issue now @ 2023-06-21! I thought the premium will fix the problem but it's useless for me now!
If this was topic was from 2010 it had been ridiculous. Adobe sabotage Arabic costumers in 2023 is childish!!!

This issue is critical for us
Simply don't waste your time with acrobat, they don't care and have no intention to support the Arabic language. I actually think they are against it because even the sites that were correcting the issue have become ineffective.

I can't get the hard copy of the workbook , its just in pdf . I am learning basic Arabic and would like to complete the exercises in the pdf so that my teacher can check my answers.

Iranian people use the same alphabet so it is urgent, many official forms in Canada need our names in both English and Persian. I have acrobat professional and I can not fill these forms!
Mosab Wadea commented

Hello there I have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Continuous Release Version 2021.005.20048 and I'm trying to fill up some documents in Arabic but when I type up in Arabic it goes like : م ر ح ب ه instead of مرحبه. I tried also to find language pack or fonts pack everywhere but every link I click on takes me to nowhere. I tryied aslo to change the font to arabic from settings or from the text layer but I still don't have an option to change my font. Can you assist me with this?

They do not see the Arabs Adobe supports dead languages But they don't want to support the Arab language. There are other programs currently that support the Arabic language, move to them
