Hi,
an important problem with Arabic fonts is that:
how to control the distance between connected letters in all the font glyphs, this problem can be seen after writing, in my first font (Gasq), i never take this issue in my consideration, but a professional Arabic font designer give me alert about it. it can be solved manually but not 100%, i think it is need to develop some new technique to detect this problem, maybe with validation wizard or proofing tools, to inform the user to make some adjustment on some identified glyphs.

Have you looked at the way it is solved in other Arabic fonts? Do they use cursive attachment?

I see some others font, It is not clear how other designers solved, maybe each one used his own method, I think it is art more than procedure available in different font softwares they are used.
