Hello,

I am translating a series of videos on Adobe Animate in Arabic. I am copying and pasting the translated words into Animate but when I do this, the words are flipped (see image), or don't look like the original.

I think it's because in the text I can only type from left to right, as in english. When I copy and paste the Arabic words in google or anywhere else, the characters are shown correctly and then I can start typing from right to left, as in Arabic.

This doesn't happen in Animate.
Usually in other software this problem is fixed by changing the "Text Engine" settings to "Middle Eastern", but I don't see anything like that for Animate.

How do I copy and paste Arabic in Animate without having them flipped?

Thank you.
