I have no idea when this may happen. What I have found (on Windows) is an 'api-ms-win-core-rtlsupport-l1-1-0.dll' file in the program's directory. I assume Serif won't comment on that 🙂

First of all, thank you for making this amazing product. I almost instantly decided to leave Adobe's products after I used Affinity Designer.    One thing I used to find annoying with Photoshop/Illu

The truth is Serif even can't support LTR (Open Type Indic Language) fully. And I requested it to Serif from may be 2013. 😀

I'm sure we would have heard by now if RTL support were coming in version 1.7. I don't expect to see it before version 2.0, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if it still isn't here by version 3.0.

Well it's been a while no admin posted here, so i'm not sure if RTL support has became a priority yet or not? 

Is there any chance to see this feature in 1.7 or near future? :)

I'm afraid it is not a priority and should not be expected for many years.

I've purchased Affinity Photo yesterday and I didn't even look for the RTL support because I thought such a company that compete with Adobe should have this already fixed. I then was shocked when I wanted to use an Arabic text in my design. Please fix this issue since it has been almost 5 years when people started talking about RTL support in this forum.

Er ... I don’t think that’s quite what you meant to say! This has nothing to do with exposing anyone's sexual orientation or gender identity. ;)

Yes, of course. Bad behaviour on my part: I should have sent a private message instead of commenting publicly.

I'm wondering why don't you just use HarfBuzz? It's MIT licensed, so it's bright from a legal side. And it's even used in many products, Chromium as an example. I purchased a license for Affinity Designer and was thinking of leaving Photoshop to Affinity Photo but it seems like I made a wrong decision. I even suggested Affinity apps for some colleagues considering them as well-made apps as I thought they were in-place replacements for adobe's apps, but I was wrong. 

 

At least share your roadmap with us so we can know where exactly this feature is.
