AL MOHANAD Font Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Tech Support,

    We've been using Al Mohanad Font for All Microsoft Office products since 2003, 2007, and 2010 however, the font is functioning perfectly with Excel and PowerPoint only so it seems that Word 2013 only having the issue and I  believe this is a problem with the word package from Microsoft.

    The boxes or symbol that appears next to every letter is really annoying.

    Please Advise on what's to be done.

  • Hi Mazeem,

    It seems that this is a known issue in Word 2013 and I didn’t find any reasons and solutions for this issue.

    But there is a workaround you can try, please use Sakkal Majalla font instead of AL-Mohanad font in Word 2013. Sakkal Majalla font is very similar to Al-Moahanad without any problems, it ispre-installed in Word 2013.

    Hope it’s helpful.
