Open up your Creative Cloud app (not InDesign) and, in your preferences, change your language to one that supports Arabic; I recall that there is a French (Arabic) option. Then go back to the Apps section and reinstall InDesign: it won't take long, as it's not reinstalling the whole app, just adding right-to-left support. Then, your document setup dialog will allow right-to-left binding, your paragraph panel will have right-to-left paragraph direction buttons, and so on.

Looking at many questions posted here on that exact topic over the many years; you are better off having a separate installation that support hebrew/arabic language. It becomes a bit of a nightmare otherwise.

Often, a designer will spend a lot of time getting it right, saves the design. When reopening the file, the text is then reversed back-to-front.

So you are better off installing the correct language.

I disagree. I have a German installation, above that I have installed Hebrew and Arabic. So I have German Interface and the possibility to use Hebrew. I have a lot of mixed books, bible commentaries with Hebrew and German. With the German installation I get also the German DUDEN language tools, which are not installed with other languages.

Bonjour

J’ai procédé à l’installation d’Indesign en modifiant la langue mais cela ne change rien
