Arabic - problems when cutting and pasting from Word into Storyline 2
Mar 16, 2017
Help! I'm having trouble cutting and pasting text in Arabic text from Word into Storyline. The source document uses Arial font. When I paste the text directly into Storyline, it creates a jumble of odd non-Arabic characters. When I cut and paste via Notepad the Arabic text is created correctly in Storyline. The attached screengrab should explain what's happening.
I've read through all the related posts but can't find a solution to this. I've repeated the experiment using a brand new one-screen SL project.
I need to solve this because exactly the same thing is happening when using import from the translation extract, and I guess it's one and the same problem. Something to do with fonts? Or formatting in the source Word file?
Any help would be much appreciated.
