Doesn't RTL text like Arabic automatically take a right-to-left layout if you paste it in to the Text object and set it to right-aligned? Can you provide an example?

hey @ashley
for words only it is working
BUT
if i add stuff like numbers or "!" / "?" it showing it wrong

example:
i want to write "15 pupils" >>> but it goes >>> "pupil 15"
or if i write "i realy want to eat pizza!!!" >>> but it goes >>> "!!!i realy want to eat pizza"

hi @ashley

I was also looking into it for my own project and I found this:

http://dotancohen.com/howto/rtl_right_to_left.html

On the bottom of the page you'll see a table with a character named "RLM - Right-to-Left Mark", it's an invisible character that fix ltr to rtl, if I paste it at the end of the text line it shows up correctly.

Do you think you can add it to the official text plugin?

Here is an example with hebrew text
