I need to use some animated Arabic text in an After Effects file that I'm working on, but I don't have the
'Text Engine' option in my menu to change it to ‘South Asian and Middle Eastern’:

I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the AE forum so that proper help can be offered.

Hi Deividas22168002sqwm,

 

I did find the answer in another thread, but I can't seem to find it anymore!

 

Anyway, if I remember rightly, this feature has now beeen incorporated into the Paragraph panel. Select the text in question, then go to the Paragraph panel and select Reset Paragraph, that should do the trick.

 

Cheers,

Luke.

For those who cannot find the text engine in your type settings, don't get frustrated, the solution is simpler than you'd think.

in the paragraph panel you'll find two buttons with an "arrow and a P" on them, switch between them to flip the typing order.
