    I just tested to export to .csv file from Acrobat v.2023.003.20201

    The same issue still persists where Arabic text shows as dots instead of a readable text.

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

    Although I agree with Mehmet that Acrobat lacks Arabic support in many of its options, however, I believe it is possible to enhance the option "Default Reading Direction" found in the Preference > Language.

    Having said that, the user need to reset above Preference option later if a PDF with Latin content (Left-to-Right) is opened.

    We already considered this request. We will update you once the team prioritise it and implement it.

    Thanks.

    Adobe Team, please let us know whether the OCR for Arabic content will be released any time soon. I have two large Acrobat sales deals in the Middle East and Nort Africa that have been placed on hold due to the fact that Acrobat cannot OCR Arabic content.
    Common team, we're all missing opportunities!

    @Amr Al-Halaby, totally agree with you.

    Did you know "Sakhr Computer Co" in Kuwait had an Arabic OCR for decades, it is just we wish to see Adobe Acrobat supports Arabic OCR just like other languages.

    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.

    I believe the issue is fixable if the Acrobat development team would look at this test I made… Type Arabic in Fill & Sign, the letters are incorrectly disjointed, exit Fill & Sign environment, choose to Edit the PDF, and add any character to the sentence I typed in Fill & Sign, even when adding a simple space, you will see the characters joins normally as they should appear!
    Here is a short clip demonstrated the above… https://youtu.be/Gy_zXLAODIs

    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.

    Thanks Lisa for raising this matter. I totally agree that editing a PDF with Arabic content will mostly ends up corrupting most or all the text on the page/document.

    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".

    Dear Vivek,
    Thank you so much for addressing ROL within Acrobat Pro. Your suggestion worked perfectly. This is a very important solution you provided which I didn't know I can customize on my Mac.
    I shall update my post on Adobe Acrobat forum.

    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.
