Hi there, so since my programs auto-update, I can't pinpoint the version this

issue started for me but the RTL formatting isn't working. 

I do have my paragraph set to "Middle Eastern & South Asian Every-Line Composer"

and I can write in RTL. But all of the punctuation marks are on the other side, which I used

to be able to fix using the RTL button (the P icon with an arrow underneath) which no longer exists?

(i used to have a "middle eastern options" options under paragraph that poped these icons out)

The same thing happens in both illustrator and photoshop... I had to revert to an earlier version

of photoshop  (21.2.7 - works fine)... Is this a new release issue or am I missing something?

Below red marked "Paragraph Directions" controls will solve your wrong end punctuation problem. However, these controls are visible in the Middle Eastern version only. If you don't see the above red-marked controls, then you better un-install Photoshop, change the language in Adobe CC Preferences to "English يدعم العربية" then reinstall Photoshop again.

Hi thanks for the reply, I am using the latest versions of both Photoshop and illustrator (it auto-updates).

This problem appeared recently, in one of the updates, I didn't have this issue in years. 

As mentioned, I installed an older version of photoshop (21.2.7) and didn't have this problem.

 

In the link you referred to under "text direction" , it shows how it used to be.

I no longer have the option to switch between RLT or LTR

which is my problem. this option doesn't exist in my menus...

Thank you Zaid! The "English يدعم العربية" in the CC preferences did the trick.

Just for an FYI, in the Creative Cloud app you can turn off auto updates and also revert to the previous version. When you update manually, there is a checkbox where you can keep the previous version.
