Aspose.Words for java converts simplified Arabic font wrongly


The simplified Arabic font is not installed in my windows 10 environment, but it is installed in the testing server, when I execute my java code, Aspose converts the document correctly in my environment, but it is converted wrongly for some words in the server.

When I installed the simplified Arabic font in my machine, I faced the same conversion error. I found that the same word has some characters converted using the simplified Arabic and other characters were converted using Arial-BoldMT although in the docx file the whole word is in simplified Arabic, this makes the word appears wrongly.

When the font was not installed in my machine, the pdf was generated using TimesNewRoman-PSMT for the whole word, so the words appeared correctly.

Is there a problem related to the simplified Arabic font?

Thank you for your help
