Introduction

This article describes an update that changes the default shaping behavior for OpenType Arabic fonts in Windows 7 and in Windows Server 2008 R2. Arabic fonts that include discretionary ligatures and contextual alternates may shape or display differently in applications (for example, in Microsoft Office 2013) after this update is applied.
