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

The text was typed like this.

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? :)

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

تنیتنیتتنستمننسشمتنبمسیتهتسمهتس [hit space twice] نتبیمبتمهیبتمهیبتهبتهبی

Will be shown like this:


  • i tried that. the space gets added to the start of the line rather than the end

  • @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.

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




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:


The result is


Or this:

>I break the line  

Which gives:

I break the line


Simple fix:

Instead of doing this:

>textextxtext >textextextext

Place a space in between:
