can't read arabic doc

Post by utilisateur » Mon Feb 04, 2019 6:11 pm


I can't read Arabic characters (on Linux and Android too ) with textmaker even though I have enabled the extended reading option for Arabic language
ps : It works without problems with libreoffice

see two files for the.doc document (in Arabic) and a screenshot for my textmaker settings

thank you

It works also with TextMaker in Windows 10. It seems that the font used for the Arabic text in your document ("Traditional Arabic") is not available in your Linux and Android systems. Either install the font or make sure to use another font that supports Arabic.
