Re: Help adding a character onto an existing Arabic font

Thanks. I've just seen the post. Although the problem may be beyond Microsoft as there seems to be the same issue with Adobe and Android.

Re: Help adding a character onto an existing Arabic font

It works when I modify a glyph but not when I add one which is strange. Do you know anyone else who may be able to help with this?

Re: Add characters (ligatures etc.) to an already existing font

I will try to contact him. The strange thing is that when I edit an existing glyph it works perfectly fine however its only when I try to add a new glyph/character that it doesn't work which is why I figured I must be missing a crucial step. But thanks for responding.

I then copied and pasted the letters “beh-arab” and “meem-arab” to create the appropriate glyph. 3. I then used the insert tab to insert a new glyph for its initial fo...
