Whenever I try to import/place text from an external file the placement icon is always appearing on the right side of the cursor.
I'm used to it showing up on the left hand side and the text flowing from left to right. For some reason, my cc installation is defaulting to an arabic right to left text justification. I've figured out how to change that so that my paragraphs all flow in a "western" pattern - left to right, periods on the right, paragraphs defaulting to left justified etc.
But changing the default on the "place" option is eluding me.
It's not so bad when I'm placing text in a single column, but when I have 2 or more set up in my document, the text won't flow from the left columns to the right columns. It only flows from the right to left.
Frustrating. Any reason why this is happening, and how to fix it?
Sounds like you have an ME version, and your defaults are set to RTL, either for the document or your styles.
That makes sense.
Do you know if I can switch my installation to a "western" version or do I have to re-install? Can I change my preferences so that they default to the non-ME version?
Thanks for your help.
I'm not an ME user, but if you have a cloud subscription you can install a US or UK English version, but I'm also quite sure you can fix the defaults, but it's probably best to wait for someone who has a RTL version to tell you where the settings are.
