The workaround to convert an Arabic PDF to Word to edit it is fine but very cumbersome when all I want to do is add one sentence or correct a spelling mistake in a huge PDF Arabic document. As long as I am in edit mode within a selected text box, the text looks fine. If I exit from the text box then do the slightest manipulation such as enlarge the width of the box, all ligatures disappear, and several letters get inverted, which is very annoying when making minor edits (I have to recheck the entire text and retype all disjoined letters, and check for inverted letters).
I hope full support for Arabic comes soon. The problem is that I often get PDF documents from third parties (such as blank powers of attorney forms from government web sites) that I need to fill or to which I need to make minor edits, and it is very time consuming to convert them to Word and back to PDF just to add a sentence or fill blanks on the form.
