Problem my font in microsoft word

Post by mzamroniahbab » Mon Nov 20, 2017 7:00 am

Before, let me say sorry because of my English..
I was making Arabic font, and it was already applied in Microsoft Word. But after typing in one file so I closed and I opened for the second time, I was finding the font was changed. How to overcome this problem?

Does your font contain OpenType layout features for Arabic?

It all turns out the code page character ranges misses Arabic, and that is important to Microsoft Word.

FontCreator automatically disable it as there aren't enough Arabic characters in the font, so you have to manually include Arabic.

Go to the Font Properties dialog. Then on the Ranges tab, click the Edit button for Code Page Character Ranges. Then check Arabic. Finally ensure you disable "Automatically update character ranges..".

We've just released a maintenance update which solves this problem, so you no longer need the work-around I suggested earlier today.
