Sketch text fonts in a different language (Arabic)

Question asked by Tiara Tan on Mar 25, 2019

Hi all,

 

I need to add in Arabic words in SolidWorks text.

I have downloaded the required fonts in windows and copied it to the C:\Windows\Fonts folder.

 

 

However, when I copy the Arabic words into SolidWorks text, it comes out gibberish as shown:

I am able to type out the Arabic words in word .doc as I have downloaded the required font. But unable to copy it to SolidWorks.
(The word I tried copying over is:
خزانة ذات أدراج)

 

I am able to type in Korean in SW but unable to do so in Arabic.

 

Do I need to do any other system configuration like downloading/copying the language folder into SolidWorks installation?
(
as per this post: https://hawkridgesys.com/blog/change-solidworks-language). However, there is no 'arabic' language folder found in the SW installation folder:

Does anyone have any idea?

 

Thanks!!
