Some of the languages are right-aligned (Hebrew, Arabic, etc.)
Is there a way in EmEditor to format the text to be right-aligned?
Thank you!May 23, 2015 at 12:12 pm #20106
i guess you got an answer. Not one which you and me would like, but an answer nevertheless!
Yutaka dear, would you reconsider?May 23, 2015 at 1:34 pm #20107
No I have not received an answer from Yutaka yet, believe in a better. Why not to support in the bi-directional editing? Is there a serious tech problem to implement this feature?

In the first place, you need to at least decipher all these strange characters such as ‘א’, ‘ב’, etc. and be able to distinguish whether something shown on screen is displayed right or reversed. Would you be able to code a Japanese rendering engine (or for other language that you never learned)?
Second, although Microsoft provides a fairly decent BiDi (Bi-Directional) engine, one needs to learn and master it. Not a trivial matter.
Don’t hold your breath…
BTW, which of the RTL languages do you need?May 24, 2015 at 1:49 am #20110
“Would you be able to code a Japanese rendering engine (or for other language that you never learned)?”, “needs to learn and master it” – it seems this is a key of the problem – human resources :-)
“which of the RTL languages do you need?” – Hebrew like you :-)May 24, 2015 at 2:49 am #20111
For the little Hebrew I need to embed in my Perl scripts, I double check the strings and character order in MS Notepad. The problems are usually around all those “neutral” characters like ‘\’, ‘/’, numerals, etc.

Meir, can I ask you what purpose for do you use EmEditor? Would I guess you are a books writer?May 24, 2015 at 9:16 am #20113
No, just writing Perl code…
