Hi everyone! I have a licensed Adobe CS6 package installed on my computer (not the cloud app). Although I see on all the InDesign guides "Binding" options, I can't see it anyway on the software installed on my computer. Why? How can I fix it?
I'm trying to edit a Hebrew book written right-to-left
As I understand it, I'm supposed to see it under Orientation on the document setup - but it is not there 😞
For sure that's the wrong dialogue. Look here: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/arabic-hebrew.html
Arabic and Hebrew supported in a Middle Eastern version with full right-to-left language support, Arabic/Hebrew features, and an English interface; also in a North African French (Français*) version with full right-to-left language support, Arabic/Hebrew features, and a French interface.
No this is the right dialog (together with the document setup):
I missed that. Thanks for the correction.
With CS6 you are out of luck. In those days, long ago, you had to buy for each language a separate licence. With CC you can install any language version and its supplements (fonts, dictionary, UI, etc.)
Nowadays it is donenthe following way:
I think that maybe the posters above me missed the fact that you're on CS6. You don't have a Creative Cloud license, right? If you're using CS6, that button only exists in InDesign Middle East Edition. You would have had to have bought it. back in the CS era it was actually made by Winsoft. It's essentially unavailable now.
so we know that binding, like all of the other RTL text manipulation tools in the ME edition, can be accessed by writing a script. If you're working on a Hebrew book, you're going to need them all. Not just binding, but character-level direction control, paragraph-level control, maybe digits, maybe diacritical marks, all kinds of controls you don't have in the English-language edition you're looking at. All of those controls are available in the ME edition.
either one would give you the tools you need for making your Hebrew book.
I did not miss it. I explicitely wrote it.

OP stated that in his introductionary sentence. 😉
