Arabic True Type Fonts are printing in backwards direction

I am using an Arabic True Type Font (Ex. Arabic Transparent OR Traditional Arabic).Using both the TEXT or MTEXT commands makes the text appears properly in AutoCAD but after making a print out the text is printed in a backward direction. I tried different printers with different operating systems but still this problem appears.
Hint: This problem does not appear using the SHX fonts(Ex. Arab.shx or Xarab.shx)

As quirky as Autocad is with ttf fonts, I suggest sticking with SHX fonts.

What are the exact names of the TTF fonts you are trying to use (Need actual file name, not the reported font name that Windows disguises).

The exact file names as they appear in the Folder (C:\Windows\Fonts) is:
1- Arabic Transparent.
2- Traditional Arabic.
The stated fonts are the fonts i tried to work with. Your help will be highly appreciated.

Isn't Arabic text supposed to print backwards?????

Is the "Print Backwards" box checked in the text style dialogue box?

Agree w/TTF vs. shx fonts but examine the test style dialogue box anyway.
