Type ‘word’: issues before even starting

I had picked a pair of arabic words. حيوية and حلاوة

The letters didn’t join the way they were supposed to in Indesign. 


I tried copy and pasting from Illustrator (since I had no problems with the type in Illustrator) into Indesign but that didn’t work either. typeindesignproblems2.png

Google lead me to this and a bunch of other solutions but nothing seemed to work. That is until I restarted Indesign. The solution was changing the composer to “Adobe World-Ready Single-line Composer” and then closing and reopening InDesign.
