Brilliant! So simple!
Thanks a lot
You can install on your computer several language versions. If you would have installed English + Hebrew + Arabic, InDesign is still installed once, but gets additional plugins which enables you to create documents in those languages. InDesign chooses the User Interface Language according the language settings of the OS.
That's said, when you set up a new document:
- Choose left binding.
- Set up Paragraph Styles, Object Styles, Table Styles which go from Left To Right, by default with an MENA version the RTL is set.
- In the Paragraph Styles change in Justify Section from a World Composer to a normal Adobe Composer (several are available).
Or what you could also do, set up an English Document (or German, French, Italian, etc.) on a computer where only Western Versions are installed and use this document on the other computer. This helps not to have accidentally settings for RTL languages, which are often hidden in many places.
I have the arabic plug in too, and it is driving me crazy - despite changing the indesign preferences before I open a page, it always reverts to Adobe Arabic, despite knowing I am in the UK and have set the language as English Uk. How do I uninstall the Arabic plug in???
You don't need to uninstall. Change the default styles when no document is open to the values you need always.
