Writing Arabic in Pycharm console

In PyCharm I have no problem in printing Arabic in the console, but the problem that I can’t write in Arabic. Instead it is written as weird symbols. How can I fix it?


It’s likely that you’re using some weird encoding, try to change your file encoding to UTF-8 or UTF-16:

Settings → File Encoding → Project Encoding → IDE Encoding

If that doesn’t work it’s also possible that your current font doesn’t support those characters. Try to use some other font. The editor font can be changed from the preferences:

Settings → Editor → Font
