Arabic font in the AutoCAD,
I’m wondering why the Arabic fonts text appear correctly on the screen but when the they are printed then they are destroyed! Please, have a look on the screenshot below.
What might be the problem? Why the Arabic fonts texts fail to appear correctly when they are printed?
Thank you for the help,
do you use true-type-fonts or do you have shx-files for these characters/words?
I guess you have true-type-fonts, my next guess is that it is printer-depended (which one has these fonts built in correctly and which one not, or may be with a different char-set).
I would therefor try to print to PDF, in the options of the "DWG to PDF.pc3" I would try two options:
a) include all fonts ...or....
b) text as graphic
...and then send the PDF to the printer.

Thank you Alfred for the answer.
I couldn’t know how to choose the options that you have already indicated. Where can I switch these options?
Why when I print texts with Arabic fonts from MS Word then they are printed correctly? While in AutoCAD neither printing on papers nor printing in Pdf give correct output!
please see the screenshots, they are from German release, but the positions are equal to the english version:

Thank you for the prompt answer.
I’ve set the options that you have already indicated but sounds not to work!
What other workaround might solve this issue?
Is this problem AutoCAD or Windows related?
All the best
try to place these chars outside a table, e.g. as MTEXT and/or as TEXT object, same error? Maybe the table-object has problems with that.
As I don't know your characters (sorry) a silly question: how different are these characters/words? Is it compareable to uppercase to lowercase or are these totally different signs with no recognizable source of the difference?

This problem is not related to the table or Mtxt or txt. It continues to exist even when they are outside the table or even with mtxt or txt.
In the Arabic language, there is no capital or small letters.
I appreciate your time and help,
how one can explain that printing the Arabic fonts from MS word has no problem at all!
Thank you for the answer.
Yes! I do have it when I print in paper.
In the past, I had this problem when I print Arabic fonts from MS-word on pdf. The solution was quite easy! All what I needed to do is to uncheck the “rely on systems font only. Don’t use document fonts”. And then all worked well.
Please, have a look on the screenshot below
