Issues with arabic typography in illustrator

alexandracama's picture

I'm working on a packaging in arabic and I'm having troubles with illustrator. The ingredients list is given to me pasted in a word document and properly written in arial. Once I copy it and paste it into illustrator the whole text changes. I guess it's because it switches it as if it was written from left to right instead of right to left. It obviously can't be fixed by flipping it horizontally or reflecting it.

If you've had this issue before or have any idea of how to solve it I'd be really grateful.

Thanks a lot!!!

Paste into Indesign, convert to outlines/paths. Import into Illustrator.
