Adobe is launching a new version of its Creative Suite Platform for the Middle East market which includes Arabic language support. Adobe Creative Suite Middle East version features support for a number of the more commonly used fonts in the region, including the Arabic XT font. It also has special settings for laying out Arabic text, including setting for paragraph and character direction, and the option of using Arabic, Farsi or Hindi digits and the use of kashidas for letter spacing and full justification. The software also has the Text on path feature supporting Arabic, and text can be spell-checked in Arabic. For Illustrator, objects such as Story, Paragraph, Character and Table can be done in right-to-left as well as left-to-right. Text can also be justified in different ways, standard, Arabic and Naskh, for a variety of layouts. InDesign includes a reverse layout feature, so a document can be converted from Roman style to Arabic or vice versa, making it easier to work on a multilingual document. Creative Suite combines Adobe’s most popular packages, Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, as well as GoLive and Acrobat.
