Thank you Aadesh for your quick response.
I have searched the Acrobat Help before posting this question, but couldn't find a solution there.
Also I have just updated my Acrobat DC to the latest version, but the problem still persists.
What are the steps that need to be taken in order to define the language direction?
All the best
What exactly are you referring to? Are you adding text to the PDF? If so, what tool are you using?
Or are you talking about converting an RTL document to PDF? If so, from what application are you converting it, and how are you doing it?
Editing text on an existing PDF that is written in an RTL language, through the "Edit PDF" function.
After playing around with the functions a bit more, I see that not only the "." is a problem, but also that changing a portion of a sentence affects the existing text in the editing box, causing it to scramble.
OK, that's more clear. Generally speaking, editing a PDF in such a way should be avoided, if at all possible.
If you still have access to the original file used to create the PDF I recommend you edit it and then create a new PDF from it.
It will save you a lot of headaches and a lot of time.
I understand, but I don't have the original document.. if I had I would have edited it and indeed save myself the trouble.
Adobe seems to have included some amazing features in the Acrobat DC, enabling professional edits. It's a shame that the option to change the language orientation is left out.
One thing you can try, although I doubt it will work, is to set the document's binding to Right Edge and Language to the one you're using (I'm guessing either Hebrew or Arabic), under File - Properties - Advanced.
Didn't work.. Thanks anyways.
Is it alright if I leave this question open, in hopes that someone from Adobe will address this?
