I am writing in Hebrew and noticed that VUE doesnt support right to left text properly.
First of all i would like to say the VUE support Hebrew allot more better than other free and paid software that i tried.
When i write in Hebrew, the text move from left to right (English mode) but the text stays in the order i type so i can continue working.
If i add English text to Hebrew, i get a mess because VUE moves it to opposite place where i need it to be, it jumps to the beginning of the sentence.
I think that adding support to right to left languages such as Hebrew and Arabic will be relatively easy because your software can display these characters.
I can successfully save and open file with Hebrew and it looks the same when i edited it.
I would gladly help testing Hebrew support and give feedback.
Thank you for you great program.

We had the same feedback from another VUE user recently. As much as we wish to help, we are limited by our commitments and funding. More so, none of us has experience with right-to-left interfaces, so we would be challenged to replicate the behavior. If you would like to look into the code and try to resolve this, we will support you.

Hello Nikolai

Unfortunately i am not software engineer and don't code software.
i can help you test various stages of development and tell you if it works or not.
I think that you almost there, VUE shows Hebrew correctly.
If you want to know how i see the bug.
Open Word or other Text processing software with Right to left support.
Enable Right to left writing.
Write in English.
You will see English text will move from right side of the page to the left side, you can work this way too but it is
more awkward (Also in Hebrew you cannot write Hebrew and English together, English word will jump to the beginning of the sentence).

Anyway keep my details, when you will decide to add this feature, send me a message.
