[RTL support] Hebrew word jumps to the end of the line
If we type a Hebrew word as first word in a paragraph, it jumps to the end of the line. This is good for paragraphs that are written in Hebrew, but if I want to make e.g. a lexical statement like:
בְּרֵאשִׁית means in the beginning …,
(which works good in this text field, by the way)
then in The Archive the first word of this new paragraph is "means", not "בְּרֵאשִׁית" as it should, and the asterisks for the italics are wrong positioned, too.
Other Mac text editors like BBEdit let me type that right without problems or correction, in RTF editors I can correct the writing direction, at least.
Besides, I know that this is a bug within NSTextField, that tries to do the right thing for Hebrew, but it doesn’t (a Hebrew paragraph would all the time begin at the right margin).
It would be a good start if we could define the main writing direction (left to right; right to left) for all documents in the preferences of The Archive. Left to right for all documents would solve every Hebrew problems in The Archive for me.
Help your customers that write in left to right languages with words or phrases in right to left languages, please!
