    Arabic titles in Avid Marquee, has it been fixed?

    Hello everybody!!!!

    I am back with an age old problem that I hope has perhaps been adressed.

    I have the need to get arabic titles out of the MArquee title tool.

    the problem is this.

    First off arabic is read from right to left.

     Arabic characters will copy paste from word document, but the order of the letters is reversed. thus "abcdefghijk" becomes "kjihgfedcba". While you might think that you could just spin the entire font gourp on its axis to reverse it, but the the letters would be backwwards, well then you try to spin each letter again, once it is in the right order, but that does not work because, insult to injury, the nature of the arabic letters is that the shape of the letter depeneds on what letter is next to it.

    See below before anyone dare chastize me for not searching the forms before posting this question.

    Anyone have a connection with an arabic TV station?

    Does Avid do any sales in the arab speaking part of the world?

    For Right To Left text,  you can right click your text box and choose Right to Left

    I think you must have a local arabic operating system to get it work right

    Dor,

    Thanks for your help, I am aware that I can change the left to right , right to left order of the characters, but that still does not fix the problem that the way that the character is shaped is dictateted by what character precedes and follows it.

    Granted, I do not speak or read arabic, but when I do change the left to right , right to left order as you suggest, the string of charactes does not resemble the document I am starting with.

    As you say, I may well need to have the operatong system in arabic to get it doen, and that opens up a whole nother can of worms.

    Hi,

    Richard:
    I am back with an age old problem that I hope has perhaps been adressed.

    I know it's not what you want to hear, but it hasn't been addressed.  I have no knowledge other than what I get through the forums, but based on the number of requests for improvements to the Title Tool and Marquee (lots) compared with the number of changes in the Title Tool and Marquee (none), I wouldn't expect any development on this.

    Sorry I don't have a better answer.

    ciao,
    Carl
