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.

Very frustrating. I am disappointed that Adobe is ignoring this topic which affects thousands and thousands of users. I am currently looking for alternative product that supports this feature as I can't hold my work forever.

I am getting a message (The operation failed because adobe acrobat encountered an unknow error)
that is weird, just make it compatible already
Why Arabic is still not supported in Fill and Sign? That is ridiculous
Any update regarding this topic ??
in the fill & sign bar above click on sign then Type in the signature section or initial section for now.

When filling the PDF form with Fill & Sign,
the words of the Arabic language are letters
that are not related to each other ?!
Is there a solution for that?
with many thanks.
I will have to look for another PDF reader and editor to use if this is not solved
please fix this issue. My work relays only in Arabic and I need to convert PDF files to excel.

it is very annoying issue especially when converting pdf to excel ... Arabic letters becomes unreadable !
It is highly recommended to use full web addresses instead which can be copied and pasted from the web browser's location bar. Full URLs are automatically made into working links. Brackets are not needed.
Please fix the Arabic fill in Acrobat Dc, Thank you
