Arabic block picker notes/help

Updated 26-Feb-2018 • tags apps, pickers, arabic

This Unicode character picker allows you to produce or analyse runs of Arabic text. Character pickers are especially useful for people who don't know a script well, as characters are displayed in ways that aid identification.

If something is broken or missing raise an issue. For version information see the Github commit list.

About the chart

Includes most of the characters in the Unicode Arabic block.

There are additional pickers for languages using the Arabic script, including Arabic, Persian, Uighur, and Urdu.

To add a character in this picker, click on one of the orange items in the selection area that ressembles the shape of the character you are looking for. Then click on one of the grey shapes that appears below to add the character to the text area. The orange ellipsis (...) gives access to a mix of characters with shapes that didn't fit elsewhere.
