To set right-to-left reading order

In a text box, right-click where you want right-to-left reading order to begin, and then click Right-to-left reading order.


In addition to changing the reading order, right-to-left reading order also justifies text on the right side of the screen for languages that use right-to-left reading order, such as Arabic or Hebrew.

If you have multiple languages installed on your computer, you can set right-to-left reading order when you right-click any edit control in Windows, such as a text box, or when you use Notepad.
