    So sad to read "Anonymous" comment on the Fill & Sign issue with Arabic. I apologise to "Sandeep" whomever he is, and other programmers and developers in Acrobat team for the racist comments made.

    You "Anonymous" didn't help us with your offensive comments, it saddens me more to see your comments associated with the iconic image of Ka'ba as non-muslims may think this is what Islam teaches us! الله يسامحك

    @Ibrahimn Da'as,
    Marhaba, It is only the "Fill & Sign" that doesn't support Arabic, while the normal PDF forms on the other hand supports Arabic very well. Just make sure to use "Prepare Form" feature in Acrobat to convert any scanned paper form, or any other form that you create in MS. Word or Adobe InDesign to PDF.

    @afra nasser, I suppose you're on Windows machine and that's why you have a fix. For me, on Mac I wasn't able to have neither Acrobat update nor Reader update to run after downloading them since both applications on my machine are updated to the latest version already.

    @afra nasser, my Acrobat is already v.2018.011.20063 without using the patch. I tested once again by typing Arabic in the Fill & Sign environment, however the problem persists.
    Can you explain the steps you took in details as much as possible?

    Good on you Adobe. I got today a message that this issue is under review. I’m available for any testing.

    Editing a PDF with Arabic content results in such a mess. Some times Acrobat will succeed to some extent in editing Arabic content but mostly it fails. It all comes to the font being used and how the PDF was created and from which application it was generated.

    Diacritics (Tashkeel) are the tiny marks that goes on top or beneath main Arabic characters. In my test, I was able to add and edit Diacritics in Acrobat without issues with some Arabic fonts such as "Adobe Arabic".

    I'm writing this comment to applaud Adobe Acrobat team for considering Arabic OCR as "Planned" feature now.

    Thank you!

    You wouldn't believe how many prospect Acrobat clients are asking us about this feature. Government, Commercial, and Education clients in the Arab World, feel disappointed after buying Acrobat when they try OCR to find it doesn't support Arabic script.

    Open supplied PDF "Gala_2012_ar_form_indesign.pdf" in Adobe Acrobat Pro, choose File > Export To > Microsoft Word > Word document.
    Check exported Word document to find much of the content wasn't exported properly if exported at all.

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