Re: [NTG-context] ARIAL and hebrew

2019-03-04 Thread Willi Egger
Thank you Arthur for your reply,

Looking at your result it is indeed ok. On my laptop (MacOS) and my brother’s 
(Ubuntu), the described problem occurs. -- I thought already, it is related to 
the font itself. I tried in the meantime Liberation-Regular-Sans which gives 
the right result.

Thank you for your input!

Willi

  Example, please :-)
