Arabic characters issue

[ Edited ]

Hi All;


While preparing a an app for the BB, we found out that the Madda using all fonts on the BB is not rendered correctly.  Instead of being a zero spaced character like the rest of the diacritics (7arakat), it is disconnected and thus creates a space between it and the next character.  What is worse is that it displays the madda in the wrong position (one character before where its actual position).   Is there a fix for it?  An example الرَّحْمَـٰنِ shows up on BB as الرَّحْ ٰمَـنِ. 


thanks in advance,

Re: Arabic characters issue

you could try to load a custom font that displays it better.
i doubt that a fix from rim-side would be much help, as it could not be retroactive, but if you want to try you can report the issue in jira.
