Dhivehi Typing in Adobe Illustrator CC 2015 & 2018

Adobe illustrator is no doubt the best vector creating app. I have been using Ai (Illustrator) for a while now and it always bugs me that Illustrator does not support typing in Dhivehi by default.

So here is how you can enable Dhivehi (Thaana) typing features in Illustrator. Note that this feature yet only supports for Illustrator CC 2015 – 2018. Not tested on 2019 and does not work in 2020 release.

Watch the below video with steps to start typing in Dhivehi.

Steps to enable Dhivehi Typing in Adobe Illustrator

Step 1: Create a new document

Step 2: Go to Edit > Preferences > Type

Step 3: Check “Show Indic Options”

Step 4: Go to Window > Type > Character

Step 5: Switch to Paragraph Tab on Character window

Step 5: Click the menu icon on the window & select Enable Middle-Eastern Single Line Composer (ref below image)

That’s it. You should be able to type fine in Thaana Script.
