Well I recently came across this problem. The problem is that Arabic font cannot be put on two separate lines

E.g.
The text was typed like this.

enter image description here

But it ends up like this.
enter image description here

Whatever I did the text never went on two separate line. Any solution for this?

    it is not a bug, and it is not restricted to Arabic, and it is not about Arabic font. May I suggest that you edit the post and make it about how to out a line break in the quoted texts? :) – Kaveh Jun 26 '12 at 15:49

Two spaces at the end of the first line works as well:

تنیتنیتتنستمننسشمتنبمسیتهتسمهتس [hit space twice] نتبیمبتمهیبتمهیبتهبتهبی

Will be shown like this:

تنیتنیتتنستمننسشمتنبمسیتهتسمهتس
نتبیمبیهتمهیبتمهیبتهبتهبی

  • i tried that. the space gets added to the start of the line rather than the end – Ashu Jun 26 '12 at 12:51
  • @Ashu: It's shown in the same line when you press enter, right? So press space twice at the end of the first line and it'll be shown in a separate line. Press edit link of the answer to see the details. – Gigili Jun 26 '12 at 22:16

Try enclosing them in <pre></pre> tags. Or use the "code" feature instead of quote (select a text and press Ctrl+K when you are in the editor)

Or in the quote mode itself, Simply put one more extra line in between

ينتبسمينبسيمنب

مينبمنستيبمنس

As Gigli said the correct way to break the line is to use double space (at the point you want to break the line) like this:

>سلامٌ  
>علیکم

The result is

سلامٌ
علیکم

Or this:

>I break the line  
>here

Which gives:

I break the line
here

-1

Simple fix:

Instead of doing this:

>textextxtext >textextextext

Place a space in between:

>textextextextextext

>textextextextextext
