Hi I am doing the exact thing as we type. I did get it to work but I had to go into my app settings in cloud and change my preferences to English- Arabic and re download InDesign. I am getting everything to work but having troubles using tabs and bullets from Right to left.
Specifying the text direction is in Character>Character direction but only got that after I downloaded the new version.
Does anyone know how to get the tabs to work? It just switches the type back to Left to Right. So frustrating.
Thanks for that. I spoke with Adobe and was told exactly that (to uninstall, change preferences to English-supports-Arabic, re-install). Except, after doing so, I still do not have the option in the character fly-out, 'Character Direction'. I guess even if I did, I'd have the same problem you're having. I'm trying to get bullets to be on the right side instead of left.
Frustrating you say? I've been at this for 6 hours now.
I have a call with Adobe tomorrow afternoon EST, should this be resolved, I'll let you know.
