# Re: [NTG-context] Converting normal font into bold

Hi Ondra,

thanks for your help.


Apparently, replacing a number enclosed in ornate parentheses (U+FD3E
and U+FD3F) with a number in the "end of ayah" ornament is a specialty
of the UthmanicHafs font. If I input the digit (e.g. U+0662) and then
the special non-printable "end of ayah" character (U+06DD), ConTeXt
and Amiri successfully output the digit inside the ornament.



Hmm, ok. But if it is a speciality of UthmanicHafs, why CorelDraw understands it natively?


Of course, since U+06DD is a non-printable character, it might be a
pain to work with in a text editor; you might want to define a custom
command for this purpose:

\def\eoa#1{#1\char"06DD}


Thanks, that works fine:

\definefont[arabicamiri][file:amiri-regular.ttf*arabic at 15pt]
\definefont[arabicuth][file:UthmanicHafs1Ver09.ttf*arabic at 17pt]
\def\eoa#1{#1\char"06DD}
\starttext
\setupalign[r2l]
\arabicuth لأَفَبِهَـٰذَا ٱلْحَدِيثِ أَنتُم مُّدْهِنُونَ ﴿٨١﴾\eoa
\stoptext


But now another question arises: How to input this command into my unicode of quran automatically? (I am using notepad++). Not the best way to do this manually for all 286 Ayas (and then search and replace for all ayas of all suras).


And still: There must be some tricks in CorelDraw handling fonts, which would be great to have in ConText :)

Thank you!
Huseyin
