    Hey,

    Will right to left text and Unicode text work in the new UI system? (We are looking to render Arabic text).

    Thanks

    We currently dont support right to left text. This will however be something that will happen after version 1 is shipped.

    Thanks for the fast reply. Looking forward to the addition of it later on. Right now we'll continue using our existing right-to-left solution and look into integrating it into the new UI layout tools. Since we are currently rendering out to a texture, which you support. this should still work quite well.
