Default other languages???

Hallo,

I have an urgent issue.
I really really need to use languages like arabic or vietnamese for my drawplus, because I am making books in different languages.
When I try them, it comes like other signs or like letters seperated from each other.
There must be a solution for it, right?
Please let me know as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance

Wonnie

Create the titles as text in a program that supports Arabic. Take a screen shot, and place that graphic in your DrawPlus design.

Vietnamese should not be a problem if you use a suitable font that supports it.

Serif Apps don't support RTL languages.

The quality can be as good as you want if you do it like this:
  1. Write the Arabic Text in LibreOffice or Word
  2. Publish to PDF
  3. Open the PDF in PDF-XChange
  4. Export as a PNG image at 1200 DPI (or more) if that's what you need
  5. Import that PNG into DrawPlus.
I attach my results, and the source files. Opening the PDF directly in DrawPlus won't work.

It's a PDF Viewer/Editor. The free version is fine for what you need.
