You can add alefMaksura-ar.init and alefMaksura-ar.medi. Then it will work. Those two glyphs are called ARABIC LETTER UIGHUR KAZAKH KIRGHIZ ALEF MAKSURA INITIAL FORM in Unicode. So I suspect that they are not used in regular Arabic. You can add both glyph and Glyphs will know that it needs to use components of the dotlessbeh.
There noonghunna does not connect and the dotlessqaf-ar is not even include in regular Arabic fonts. So I think the behavior is fine.
The question is for what languages this glyphs are needed. I didn’t find information about then in the usual places. They all have a unicode but don’t seem to be wildly used.
And you should use their nice names.

Thats true, I’m arab and i never saw them being used but Arabic, persian & urdu are so wide to know it all 100% and doing it this way connecting wont be a loss anyway
Yes i did that because without this naming and only using the unicode as the name I guess Glyphs didn’t write it’s feature and it it didn’t work unless i used their “nice names”
