I'm trying to create an image which contains Arab text.
This is the (HTML entities for the) text: العربية
Raw, it is العربية
When I paste the text into GIMP, I select and correctly get RTL (right to left) text, but the characters are not "joined", as described at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Arabic.
If I paste into Word, it comes out OK.
I'm using GIMP 2.6.8 on Windows 7 64 bit.
Is there a way to persuade GIMP to render the text joined?
