Due to the numerus post addressing the topic and the related answers, I guess that nothing has changed since then, but I would like to stress out how RTL and arabic / hebrew / ... language support is an important feature not only for the middle east market but also for anyone working on calligraphy.  

 

best regards

Today I got client from Middle East. I have to use Inkscape just to write Arabic RTL phrase then import it from there.

If Affinity Designer is meant for professional use, please don't make it half baked.

Arabic support is the only missing feature I can think of when using Affinity Photo. I hope that the development team spends some time tackling it. Many modern Operating Systems have built-in support for RTL and specially Arabic language and the team can also benefit from open source projects that have this support.

Please support RTL and Arabic Text in your next versions.
It's really pain in the ass to import text layers as PDF from Pages App.

I know 3 friends of mine using same method :(

It is really annoying to not have RTL support, I have to flip every single frase.

Even just an easy way to flip the text will be much better (Which shouldn't be hard).

 

The funny thing is that in the `Character` menu there's an option to select the character's language as hebrew even though the hebrew language is not actually supported! (But it does change some things...)

Also, when i name layers in hebrew it does flip the text.

Hello everybody!

I’m happy to announce the release of our Right-to-Left writing solution for Affinity Designer, Photo and Publisher. The app could help fix RTL writing in other software which has a similar issue as Affinity’s apps do.
