Arabic font marks problem
0

hello there,

lately, I finished making an Arabic font with tashkeel (marks),
the result is nice in adobe programs (illustrator for ex), but while testing it in notepad or wordpad the problem appeared

when i add a mark to a letter it adds a useless space, like the image below

the image is captured from wordpad
I use win xp btw

I’m sorry I cannot help with your problem (and I don’t even read arabic), but I like your font! :-)

Mark glyphs need to be zero width and assigned OpenType "mark" glyph class, how to do that depends on the tools you use.

It is not a problem. It is the Uniscribe text rendering as damma and kasra can not be placed simultaneously on a single letter, so the Uniscribe moves forward the second mark over the mark sign. Yes, you can apply a shadda with kasra to the same letter. {Uniscribe is the Microsoft Windows set of services for rendering Unicode-encoded text}

Anyhow, you can get the required result in Adobe software.

You can solve it using the following syntax for all marks.

uni25cc damma -> damma

Where uni25CC is the dotted circular shape below damma.
