    Please, do not make any changes to your username or email addresses at id.unity.com during this transition time.

    It's still possible to reply to existing private message conversations during the migration, but any new replies you post will be missing after the main migration is complete. We'll do our best to migrate these messages in a follow-up step.

    On July 15, Unity Discussions will become read-only until July 18, when the new design and the migrated forum contents will go live.

    Hello everybody,

    Unfortunately, Arabic isn't supported correctly within the editor when you want to enter a Text.

    It's a common problem that Arabic letters are rendered separately not in its cursive form, which is the only way it's written, and the letters are aligned from Left to Right, while Arabic is like Hebrew, they're written from Right to Left.

    This problem was present in Google Chromium when it got first ported to Linux, and it was fixed within a week or so after it got reported. It was present in Opera Web Browser too and got fixed, and lately was/is present in the WPS Office Suite and they emailed me telling me it should be fixed in the next release.

    The point is, you might have your solution in the Chromium bugs' fixes, since it's the very same issue and it might provide a quick solution to that.

    Good luck guys, and great work indeed.

    The solution can be taken from the WPS guys, as they fixed it in their latest release, and in their Forums, they had a discussion with a developer about it and their workaround, and they answer all emails, so I believe if you can drop them an email they'll guide you to what to do.

    I'm working on my first project and it's all in Arabic, so plz consider this.

    On the other hand, I'll try to check the code and fix it myself, I just need our help to point me at which folder or part should I be looking?
