Occasionally paragraph allignment works opposite for left & right align, usually on Illustrator documents with Russian type.
In additon on center align text I set my cursor to input a period at the end of a sentence, and the period instead gets added to the beginnning.
In character palete language is set to English USA, this is point text.
I created a new point text and this is happening, if I paste text from another document alignemnt works fine, font is arial balck but happens with all fonts.
here is a MAc CS5 file with a sample of what is acting wrong.
Hi Mike--That file is pretty strange.
I don't have CS5 or 5.5 installed anymore, this was done in CS6 and back saved. I never experienced such a thing in 5/5.5. The style definition was void of most parameters with the exception of the alignment.
The modified version:
Take care, Mike

Yes, Mike, what did you do? I tried resetting character styles, appled Normal Character Style, even applied the style from your modified document, and still couldn't get expected behavior on Mike Gondek's type. CS5.
Just for the record, my observations:
If you Show Hidden Characters, the end-of-text character appears on the left, as does a soft return.
Punctuation and non-alphanumeric characters and spaces appear on the left, until an alphanumeric is entered, when everything shifts to the right.
A left parenthesis (any visibly oriented non-alphanumeric character) appears on the left as a right parenthesis, but becomes a left one (on the right) when it is followed by an alphanumeric.
I had to pick up a exisitng file to do a flavor line extension for a Scandanavian gum onto a new die. This has happenend to me before on Russian, adn the flavor name worked that way in Russian. Not that I am trying to blame the Russians for this, but aren't most languages top left to bottom right, except Chinese, Arabic & possibly Russian Cyrillic since one of my files acted that way?
Cyrillic is left to right. Right to left scripts also include Hebrew, Kurdish, Persian, Urdu, and Yiddish. In the old days, some scripts could go either way or boustrophedon, including the Futhark, Etruscan, Greek, Roman, Anatolian hieroglyphs, and Rongorongo.
The monitor is not upside down, but may need to try that or a mirror.
If anyone else finds a quicker way to fix this, let me know.
