Engraving Arabic alphabet

Post by ggbusmgr »

I'm trying to figure out how to engrave the 28 arabic letters into wood. Each board would have the upper, lower and open vowel for each letter. I have the arabic font on my machine with vCarve V9. Any help is appreciated.

For right-to-left alphabets such as Arabic and Hebrew it is easiest to do the layout in Corel or Microsoft Word that has support for right-to-left. Print or save the results as a PDF file. Import the PDF into VCarve.
