Hi Kakarla,

If you still haven't obtained results after trying the forum link, you might want to consider changing the font family. I can provide you with a sample Arabic font family from Google Fonts that I've successfully used in my sample app. It works better.


Did you changed the xconf file with your relevant fonts?


Add this content between <fonts> tag.


<font kerning="yes" embed-url="IBMPlexSansArabic-Regular.ttf">

          <font-triplet name="ibmflex" style="normal" weight="normal"/>



The xconf file was located in the folder for your modeler version. In my case, it was found in this location.

C:\Program Files\Mendix\\runtime\lib

Even if it does not work. Check your resources folder whether you have that ttf file was available in this folder. 


Copy the xconf file and paste it into your project's resources folder.

I hope this helps. 


Hi Haritha,


It is possible by following the documentation: and


It's a bit cumbersome (finding the right font etcetera), but it works. At least for me adding the Slovak Cyrillic characters.
