Description Munzir Taha 2013-11-24 05:40:02 UTC
Problem description:
Currently, I see no way to set the color of diacritics. In Arabic diacritics are separate glyphs and should be treated as such in the sense that one can select them and apply any formatting to them.

Steps to reproduce:
Type two Arabic glyphs e.g:
ضَ
Current behavior:
Cannot change the color of the second glyph

Expected behavior:
Should be able to set the color for each glyph separately.

Operating System: Linux (Other)
Version: unspecified
