No Right-to-Left toggle in Paragraph panel when Adobe World-Ready Paragraph Composer is in effect

So for background, I'm a professional freelance designer with an individual user Adobe CC subscription...

 

I do occassional translation jobs for clients involving Arabic translations. However, I don't have the right-to-left toggle for my text direction when I use Adobe World-Ready Paragraph Composer. 

 

The clients who send me this work are usually agencies with multi-user subscriptions and they have this feature. Both myself and the agencies I work with have the English version of Adobe CC.

 

The only 'workaround' I've been given is to completely switch my Adobe CC to Middle Eastern, which is obviously not an option as I don't know of potential effects this could have on my other work, not to mention to the cost of the time to do this every time. 


Why should I have to do this when my business subscription colleagues have the feature? I pay an equivalent fee per month? 

If anyone has a solution for this, other than the workaround of copying text boxes out of an already formatted document, I would really appreciate it?

Right-to-left support that you want is only available in the regional editions designed to support right-to-left languages.

Switcing to the ME version should not affect your other work, though there may be some other bugs not present in the US/European versions.

Hi Peter,

 

Why is this feature available to business users and not to me, an individual user who pays an equivalent amount? This is harmful to me as a single-person business and should be rectified.

  4. Sroll down until you see default installatiin language.
  5. Select a language with RTL functionality.
  6. Install all applications where you miss this feature again. After the change of the language most, but not all, applications have change to install.
  7. After installing the other language change back to your prefered language
  8. Now should your UI be in your prefered language but InDesign has additional funtionality from that language. These items might be in English  if no terminolgy exists in your language. All other items are in the default language.

Hi Peter, I'm afraid that it does affect the file. I mean if you open a document in your US English/International English of InDesign, and this document was created in Middle Eastern InDesign you may experience wierd text behaviours in alignment, or punctuation positioning on the wrong end of the paragraph. 

What I suggest for such users to do, is to download another copy of InDesign, a little older version that supports Arabic and use this version for such jobs while keeping your US English copy of InDesign for regular jobs.
