Fiesta is great software, I love it, but it has one problem with text. Fiesta renders correctly English text, however it renders Arabic text incorrect. It’s looking that text flow from left to right and all characters are separated, but Arabic text must written from right to left and all charactes should be visually attached to the same character.
I naturally use arabic text in my shows, it’s large handicap for me.
Is possible write arabic text by different way as by text effect?
We know this bug (look “Timeline known bugs” in blog https://www.showtacle.com/new-fiesta-for-mac-1-0-81-released/).
We are now working on fix it, we will release version with fix it at end of this year.
If you need urgently write arabic text now before new version released, you can temporary draw manually it in editor, where you can use background as image that contains your arabic text and you can draw outlines from image.
