Half Space (semi-space) in Persian or Arabic


In Persian or Arabic languages we can use half-space in our documents.

For example, in notepad (Windows) or Microsoft Word, we can use half-space with Ctrl+Shift+2 keys. (If windows keyboard be Persian)

In another IDE's I can use from half-space. But in PHPStorm or Android Studio, I can't write half-space in my source codes.


Here is a sample for half-space.

I want to write this text. => این یک تست می‌باشد.

After می I want to use half-space.

Now when I want to write, In PHPStorm will be written: می باشد

But I want می‌باشد


How can I fix the problem?



Helloooo. Anybody there?

But it's a problem in the JetBrains tools. 


This issue should be fixed since 2017.3 builds of IntelliJ-based tools: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-177979
