  • Is your paragraph style defined RTL?
  • Or did you apply a character style with RTL? If the whole paragraph style is RTL, apply such a paragraph style.
  • Is it a mixed RTL/LTR paragraph, make forced returns only in the main direction, as mixed returns in the same paragraph cause always problems.

I do a lot of typesetting with biblical commentaries and sometimes I have to contact the author to separate longer texts into 2 paragraphs to avoid these problems.

It was never a problem till the 2024 update... when a sentance is doing a forced line break the punctuation jumps to the wrongs side of the text! Very difficult to work like this - having to manually change the RTL or vice versa

Use Paragraph and Character Styles. This is not a trick, this is basic workflow. Nothing has changed to the previous version. Working without styles is working with chance and you cannot expect that it works without problems.

 

Use styles, never work without styles.

You cannot claim that the behaviour has changed if you have not a consistent workflow. “Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t”. Use styles and only with styles you can avoid problems. There is no reason to avoid styles. Without styles the outcome is randomly and it makes a difference where the curser is.
