Access Middle Eastern Functionality
To access the Middle Eastern functionality is CS6, you have to go to your Preferences and choose Type. Then, under Text Engine Options, choose Middle Eastern.

Now, you’ll notice that your Character and Paragraph panels have lengthened with new icons to support these features.
