I'm using an Arabic font called JF Flat. Everything was fine but when I started on a new project the space between the letters does not show and when I press space nothing happens.

enter image description here

I wrote two spaces between those words but they are not visible.

  • the problem isn't with the illustrator or the font .. when i open a new document or a window the problem is solved .. but with that window the problem is the same with all the fonts Jul 3 '16 at 17:53
  • Seems unlikely but if you open the justification settings from the paragraph panel is "word spacing" set to "0%"?

Go into Paragraph - Justification settings change Minimum and Desired word spacing to 100%


Check your "Single Word Justification"setting Steps: When in edit mode select "paragraph" from your tool bar. Select the button at the top right in the dialogue box (3 rows of a dot & a line). Select "Justification" Select "Single Word Justification" If this shows "fully Justify" change to one of the align options.
