I don't know if you're still monitoring this thread but I did a lot of typing in Arabic and Persian for a project in Photoshop and I had the same problem.

Nothing fixed it at all, except one thing: uninstalling Photoshop, going into creative Cloud > preferences > Apps> English (arabic script) see the screenshot.

Eventually, when I stopped working on the Arabic/Persian project I had to uninstall Photoshop and re-install Photoshop > English (international) because when you have it as English (Arabic script) everything is default set Right to left, all the Arabic Fonts are listed first, and I'm English speaking so it was not convenient for me. There is unfortunately no more elegant way to do it.

what I suggest is creating several documents when you're in the setting English (arabic script) because the text boxes inside your file will retain correct Arabic ligatures and properties. IT's the same situation with Adobe Premiere. So I created my original Premiere projects with the English Arabic but I've reverted to English international and now I've made 57 videos that contain Arabic text, but they are all copies of the original template I created with the right settings, and everything hasEnglish (Arabic setting) been maintained.
