Hindi numerals is the offical numerals used in the arab world. So I use Hindi numerals with Arabic characters. But the problem with OpenOffice is that it does not change the font of the numerals when I change the font of characters in "CTL font" unless I change the font in the "Western text font". I think, Hindi numerals should be smartly linked with Arabic language. Just like how Arabic numerals are linked with Western languages. Note: You have to know that if you enable CTL (Complex Tex Layout), you will get two fields for choosing fonts. The first is "Western text font" and the second is "CTL font". Another problem but with PDF. which is that when I export a document to a PDF, any Hindi numeral will change into Arabic numeral in the exported PDF no matter what font I choose.

Duplicate of issue 22396? For the second problem described, there is issue 87669.

@fme, tl: please see the description above, which has a very valid point: the digit font should match the digit language

The second problem mentioned, which is about Hindi digits in PDF export is probably a duplicate to issue 81577, which was supposed to be fixed in 2.4. Please open another issue if that is not the case. The issue should concentrate on the "digit-font should match digit-language" aspect.
