Re: Arabic problem in communication center PC suite 7.0.8.2

This issue is related to the language code pages,

But I found workaround solution to fix this issue , please

follow these steps
- Open Control Panel
- Go to regional and language options
- Click the "Advanced" tab
- The "select language ..." combo box is English (United States)
in the "Code page conversion tables", scroll till you find "20424 (IBM EBCDIC - Hebrew). Check this checkbox
- Click OK
- You might be prompted to insert the Windows installation CD.
- restart you pc
- Run the PC suite, you will be able to see Arabic fonts

Hope Nokia fixes this bug ASAP , Arabic font should be displayed correctly even without select Hebrew code page

Re: Arabic problem in communication center PC suite 7.0.8.2

Hi,

Have you tested this issue in latest PC Suite 7.1.18.0? Also please do make sure that you have got arabic language on your PC, PC Suite and on your phone.

From PC Suite's Help file

You should use the same language in the phone, the operating system, and Nokia PC Suite, if possible. This allows your phone to function properly with all Nokia PC Suite applications.

Re: Arabic problem in communication center PC suite 7.0.8.2

This one worked fine with me on Vista. I guess it is a "Default Font Problem":
- Open 'Control Panel'.
- Go to 'Fonts' folder.
- Delete the 'MS Sans Serif Font 8,10,12,14,18,24 (VGA)' font.

* Notice that there are two fonts has approximately the same name, you just have to remove the font with the 'Sans' prefix.
* I prefer to take backup first.
* Try view your messages and contacts normally

Re: Arabic problem in communication center PC suite 7.0.8.2

Hi everybody,

The problem is somehow related to the Font as previous comment said, and it is exactly with the font size !

Try holding "ctrl" key and scroll your mouse wheel, you see the font size is increasing, when it is big enough, you will see that every character will then look nice and fine.

Enjoy.
