QXP 8.5 and Arabic

Postby Quarkhorse » 08 Aug 2016, 10:36

Dear friends,

I'm using 8.5 to typeset a book of translations (into English) of Arabic poetry. The typeface I've chosen (Scotch Modern) handles all the transliterated diacritics perfectly. However, I've purchased Times New Roman World to set the actual arabic words that occasionally appear. In Microsoft word, this font perfectly renders the arabic; in Quark, though, it renders the arabic incorrectly.

Any ideas/helps/tip would be much appreciated!
