Arabic Pad is a compact application that is designed to help you write Arabic text in Unicode documents. It is a useful tool for the users that own a regular keyboard and need to type a text in Arabic.
The program changes the keyboard mapping in order to assign each key to an Arabic alphabet letter. The changes are only recognized by the application so you are only able to create Arabic texts in Arabic Pad.
You can save the output text to a simple text file that can be opened or edited with other programs. The program does not offer the possibility to print the file so you need to open it with another text editor in order to send the output to the printer.
However, you can use the text by pasting it in other applications such as email clients or instant messaging applications. This application can help you write a short text without installing fonts or language packs on your computer. You can also use it on multiple computers since it can run directly from a removable storage device.
Besides the basic text editing commands the program allows you to change the font face and the size of the text from the main toolbar. Unfortunately, you cannot format the text by changing the style or the color.
Overall, Arabic Pad is an easy to use program that provides all the required tools for writing text in Arabic Unicode format.
