Hello,

I have problems with English text inside an Arabic sentence in a glossary. Basically, the English letters are displayed right to left.

The Arabic text is itself part of a paragraph in English, but formatted as correct Arabic using a character style.

I tested changing the character direction to “Default” or “Left-to-Right” for the English part of the sentence, but then the text is moved to the wrong place.

Is there a good way to solve this, other than typing the English text backwards?
