The new Universal Text Engine not displaying Arabic correctly
The new Universal Text Engine is amazing, works 99% of the time. However I spotted is not displaying pauses/breaks in Quranic verses in certain fonts. Noorehuda is a font that supports these characters online but in Premiere they don't show up. Only in the default font it does appear correctly, but it isn't appearing in several arabic fonts we use.
If you can fix this bug it would be greatly appreciated! It's so close to perfect already but we cannot use it unless all the characters can be displayed in the noorehuda font.
Quran arabic text for your reference:
ذٰلِکَ الۡفَضۡلُ مِنَ اللّٰہِ ؕ وَ کَفٰی بِاللّٰہِ عَلِیۡمًا ﴿٪۷۱﴾
Thank you in advance.
We received some additional information as requested and are reviewing the problem to determine what further action may be taken.

Thanks for the quick reply, this is much appreciated!
Yes this font (noorehuda) displays correctly in wordpad. The font we use is quite important for our brand so I am reverting back to the tedious but trusted importing an image of the arabic text technique.
Photoshop exhibits the same issue of the missing stops/pauses, I tried that last night after posting this.
Only Myriad Arabic seems to currently be supporting the pauses and symbols but even then the symbols that do show up seem partial. Noto Sans Arabic has the same issue of the pauses/stops not appearing.
here's some more arabic to test with that has another more complex stop in it:
صِرَاطَ الَّذِیۡنَ اَنۡعَمۡتَ عَلَیۡہِمۡ ۬ۙ غَیۡرِ الۡمَغۡضُوۡبِ عَلَیۡہِمۡ وَلَا الضَّآلِّیۡنَ ٪﴿۷﴾
Thank you for reporting this to us. Does the display look correct if you use the same font and Arabic characters in an external like Word/Wordpad (Win) or TextEdit (Mac)? Also, if you have Photoshop available, can you try the same steps in that application to see if the result looks the same?
For now, you might try working around the problem by using an Adobe font that supports the full Arabic script such as Myriad Arabic or an Adobe-supported Google font like Noto Sans Arabic. You can install those and other fonts using your Creative Cloud desktop app, under the Manage Fonts category.
