hebrew - Right to left at InDesign and Illustrator

Jun 12, 2013 10:09 AM


I tried the CS6 version from the adobe site, and for some reason i managed to type Hebrew RTL only in Photoshop.
InDesign and Illustrator wont support RTL writing. even though i picked the "English support Hebrew" at the licence section.
any idea why?

Is there a middle east version?

    There is a ME/NA edition of InDesign, don't know about Illustrator. It should be available for download for to subscribers to Creative Cloud (and I would presume as a trial), or through resellers in that part of the world. You cannot run more than one regionalized version of the same release version (i.e. CS6 US and CS6 ME/NA) on the same computer simultaneously -- you have to uninstall one before installing the other.

    Where are you located? I seem to recall that Creative Cloud is not yet available in Israel and a few other places, but you should still be able to download a trial, I would think.


    If you can't find it anywhere, try sending a message to Gabe Harbs (he's a regular here, and owns, an authorized distributor, last I knew). His profile is at

    Did you contact Harbs?


    His company also distributes a plugin, World Tools, that will add RTL features to the US version, and I'm pretty sure he has a trial for that as well.
