I have create a shapefile using Arcgis 10.3 . the shapefile contains attribute data in Arabic language . the problem came when I open it in Mapwell (an app specializes in creating navigable maps) Mapwell displays it as series of question marks and other symbols , even if I set the encoding to Arabic . Here another I have noticed , When I export the same data using Arcgis 10.0 it just works flawlessly.
I did some workarounds like changing the encoding scheme of some files (.cpg and .dbf) and other things, and nothing has worked
