Hey all, first post!
I have a request from a customer to set some Hebrew...Right to left.
I have been running ID 5.5 for a while, and version 5 and 4 before that so I am quite familiar with it...however this is the first time I have needed to use this feature.
I am struggling however!
I cannot seem to find the options needed to change the text direction. I understand with v.5.5 its because I didn't have the Middle Eastern version...and now it seems I can't get it/upgrade even if I wanted to (but I would happily pay and do this if I could). I have also downloaded and tried v.6...but this to seems to be missing what I need.
I tried changing my setting in the Adobe Manager prefs...and then re-downloading the demo...as I have seen advised on another thread, but this didn't seem to change anything.
I can't be the first person to want to use this...somebody please help and provide me with a simple step by step guide to getting this function working!
Intel Mac, ID v 5.5 or 6(demo)
Many thaks in advance!
.and now it seems I can't get it/upgrade even if I wanted to (but I would happily pay and do this if I could). I have also downloaded and tried v.6...but this to seems to be missing what I need.
Did you download a trial of InDesign CS6 Middle Eastern Edition, or just regular InDesign CS6?
The regular version will not do.
See http://www.adobe.com/mena_en/products/indesign.html for the ME edition. There is a "Try" link on the right-hand side. It probably takes you to http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=indesign&loc=en_ae but I am not sure the direct link works. You presumably want "English-Hebrew Enabled."
You probably want this one though:
Thanks thats great...just what I needed. It wasn't clear on my first few attempts but your links took me straight to the English-Hebrew versions ...nice one. Having had a go with it today it does the job, but leads me onto another question:
Is it possible to have both right to left and left to right text in the same para?
