hi every one.
i read the previous post about unicode support in libreoffice and
became very worried.
does libreoffice support unicode independently?
i mean if someone install a fresh windows (without installing any
font), is it possible to read the persian and arabic documents and
write the documents in two languages?
a person who has a fresh windows, does not install separate windows,
and also the only office program is libreoffice.
and my second question is, how to configure libreoffice to support
persian and arabic diacritics like the letters?
i reported a bug for this problem almost two years ago and without any
result until now.
i pray for you and request devine mercy and grace for you.

The short answer is no. While a document may contain unicode characters, they still need to be displayed which requires a font or localization file. Normally people who can read a language have the files installed. If you don't have a font for a particular language, it won't display correctly.

Windows will use a system font for text editors and may replace fonts for word processors, etc. with one that has similar metrics. However it won't install a character set for a language it doesn't have.

If you go File>Properties>Font and tick Embed are the fonts then embedded in the document to be able to read it even if you don't have those fonts installed?
