Szalam​ is it possible to paste RTL text from Word into exiting LTR layer in Afx?
Lets say you need to do a translated version of an existing complex animation e.g.
Haven`t had any luck with it so far. Installed all the language. The Afx layer name is correct but what is displayed in the viewport is wrong.

Cheers

Is there a guide somewhere for an English user to be instructed in using Arabic text correctly? Copying and pasting, even in 14.2 gives random results. The ArabicText script works, visually, usually but it is very confusing for a westerner. Things go upside down, not just back to front, change completely. Returns to weird things. I'm doing language versioning on different templates and realising it's a can of worms...

Ok I am adding this answer as Adobe has updated the type engine to be universal but yet somehow it still does not work perfectly with Arabic text. What you would have to do though is "reset paragraph settings" and then it will work perfectly.
