Feature Request: Right-to-left scripts for fonts such as Arabic or Hebrew

Recommended Posts

I do a lot of design work for the middle eastern world. I have certain arabic fonts installed on my mac computer. However, the right to left input functionality does not work for the arabic font to make sense. It works in other mac applications such as Pages. This is a super important feature and I would really love for Affiinity Designer to support right-to-left scripts for writing in foreign languages such as Hebrew or Arabic input. This is where the cursor starts on the right side and the font lettering goes left. Please add this, it is super important for my niche!

 

:rolleyes:  B)

 

Thanks.
