Hi everyone!

I'm editing a text with arabic words and phrases. I enabled the World-ready composition and everything was apparently fine with the arabic text.

Anyway I noticed a problem with some numerals in the text (latin numerals, not arabic) that were automatically converted in arabic ones. I can't understand the reason: same font, same style, anything wrong, but after enabling the W.r.c. some numerals changed to arabic ones.

This is quite annoying also because these arabic numerals keep the left to right direction, so if I want to change an arabic numeral with the correspondent latin one I encounter the problem you have while inserting latin text within a right to left one.

 

How can I do not to have this automatic conversion of some numerals in arabic ones?

 

Thank you! Smile

The numbering style is normally handled by the applied language. You can also specify the numbering style manually using the World Tools Panel.

Thank you Harbs.

 

Where exactly do I have to go to set the numbering style as manual? I can't find it... Embarassed

 

If I click on In Tools > World Tools > Enable World-Ready Composition, I have this problem, some numerals become arabic and I can't change them. But I can't find where I can go to set the numbering as you told me...

 

Thank you.
