    Why Zarnegar and/or Kelk? They are standalone applications!
    Why not try the smaller and smarter QalamBartar?
    https://ahmedgraf.com/2018/06/12/qalam-bartar/

    Elaborating: QalamBartar does not only go with Microsoft and Adobe applications that support Arabic-based scripts like Persian, Urdu, Pashto, Sindhi, Saraiki, Kazakh, Uyghur, Punjabi, Khowar (Chitrali), Malay (Jawi), Balochi, Brahui, Kurdi (Kurdish), Kashmiri (Koshur), Kirghiz, Ozbek, Turkmen, Gawri (Kalami) and Pegon, but it does also include the full ligatures possible, at the begining, middle and end.
    Happy exploring
