In this tutorial, I will guide you on how to add Urdu in Adobe Illustrator. Before you start typing Urdu in illustrator, you need to install Urdu by going to Regional settings-> Language-> Add a Language. You can use an online Urdu keyboard as well to copy text to illustrator.
Now open the illustrator, go to Edit->Prefrences-> Type. Now you will see an option named “Show indic Option” make sure you check it once done and save the changes by pressing the OK button.
Now add the text; while selecting the text, go to Windows-> Type-> Paragraph.
Click on the hamburger icon on the right side of the window. Few options will appear; make sure you select Middle Eastern and South Asian Single line composer.
