interactive form reversing text

I built an interactive form in hebrew and in english, both in the same form.

It was then exported to a PDF file so that our customers will be able to fill it.

Recieving the filled file back from the customers - in some cases the text was readable, but in others the text was reversed and therefor unreabable.

Is there an explanation I can give to the customer filling the file so that the texts will be readable in any case and in both languages? Or is there an action I should do to enable it?

I don't know.

But the first step in troubleshooting such a thing would be to analyze more precisely in which cases the text is reversed and in which cases it isn't. Does it happen only with a certain type of widget/form field? Has the RTL setting being correctly used in InDesign's Buttons and Forms panel? Etc.
