Hello,

to support Arabic script in SAPscript and Smart Forms you do need to always use AR language key for your form (never EN).

If you do NOT have the correction from note 1738670 in your system,  you probably need to license and install CourierNew TrueTypeFont for the PDF conversion with Arabic. Please check out note 940205 in that case.

Regards,

You will have to contact the Basis team to install the fonts at ADS level.

Refer to thread below. It explains similar issue but with HINDI font.

Use the device type ARSWIN for printing arabic output.

Please go to T Code SPAD and then create a new output type and assign the device type as ARSWIN.
