Hi


Can you let me know what is the root cause of this issue? Also can you give any visibility on its resolution or what priority you have assigned to it?

Thanks.

Hi,


Thanks for your inquiry. The problem occurs because when justify low/medium/high option is selected for Arabic text, a special kind of justification called kashida is performed. In contrast to white-space justification, kashida justification is accomplished by elongating characters at certain chosen points. The characters are elongated by appending a number of glyphs resembling “ـ”.

The kashida justification can’t be supported now because Aspose.Words has limited support for fonts. Specifically, the glyphs of the Arial font used for elongating have glyph ID (1127) but have no code point.

The glyph for the elongation is specified in JSTF table (at least in Arial and Times New Roman).

Support for such glyphs will be added once OpenType advanced typography is resolved as per WORDSNET-6633.

Secondly, since you reported this issue via Aspose.Words’ normal Forum, WORDSNET-11360 was logged with ‘Normal Priority’ in our issue tracking system and when an issue is reported via normal (free) support forum we make no promises about estimations on when a fix can/will be delivered.

@awais.hafeez , We are facing the same issue. I raised a question for the same last week under " Kashida styles not working, when converting word to pdf" topic.
Can I ask any update on above.

@savinda90 As I already mentioned in your original post, Kashida feature is not yet supported by Aspose.Words layout engine. Once this feature is implemented we will notify you in your original thread.
