What is the font used in Bold 9780 for Arabic?

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone, hope you are doing good.

 

I'm using Bold 9780 with the latest updates, working almost perfectly.

 

I copied the BBM message history files to my PC, they open as M.O.Excel sheets. Messages in English do show, yet, Arabic messages are just some scratching.

 

I believe that the problem is that my laptop does NOT support the Font that my BB is using for Arabic.

 

The plan is to install this Font in order to be able to read the chat history, the  main problem is that I have no idea which font it is.

 

Any help would be appreciated..

Do you have Arabic fonts installed in your PC?

Yes I do have Arabic fonts.
It shows something like this:
" ظ†ظˆ ظ†ظ†ظˆ "
could it possibly be something other than the fonts?? 'cause I tried with all the different fonts on my PC and still shows the same :smileyfrustrated:

If Arabic is installed then there shouldn't be any issue. I think you've received inputs in some other language and device is not being able to display that.

In fact they do display on my device (Bold 9780), but when moved to my PC then they don't show. If that's what you're saying.. And I'm sure it's Arabic 'cause I know Arabic as my mother language.

If you're talking about something different then how can I fix that?

I finally figured it out.. It came out to be a problem in the encoding of the file..

 

 

it should be UTF8 in order to read Arabic (and other languages as well).. I couldn't really change the encoding of the excel sheet so I just switched the extension to .doc and it suggested to switch to another encoding..

Just choose UTF8 and everything works very well =D

Thanks a lot for your efforts!
