can any one of tell me what is wrong with this question ? – dave Sep 15 '11 at 12:23
Arabic being written right-to-left surely has something to do with it. How AutoCAD messes this up is best asked at the vendor's support forum. – Hans Passant Sep 15 '11 at 12:33

I have worked with AutoCAD for years. I have seen similar problems with other (high end HP) printers. The fix was to switch from using the hppcl printer driver to using the postscript printer driver. I do not know if a PS driver exists for your printer. The best place to seek a better answer would be the AutoCAD forums
