Working with Arabic Text in QuarkXPress 2023+

In July 2022, Quark announced on their YouTube channel that QuarkXPress 2023, to be released in November 2022, would support Arabic natively. But, native Arabic support was not available in the initial release of QuarkXPress 2023 in November 2022, and is expected in a future upgrade.


Future developments


Depending on the technical implementation of the Quark Arabic support in QuarkXPress 2023, we may decide to extend our own support of Arabic, as implemented for QuarkXPress versions 8-2022, to the 2023 version of QuarkXPress.


But, for the moment, the Q++Studio Arabic support for QuarkXPress 8-2022 has been extended to QuarkXPress 2023.


This page will be updated as additional information is available for the general public.


April 14, 2023: As per Quark's official announcement, the recent 19.1 release of QuarkXPress 2023, though it now supports RTL languages, does not yet include kashidas (or any type of justification).
