    InDesign ME switches text to RTL when copy&paste to a new document

    Pete Stan

      Hi all, I wonder if it’s possible to force LTR settings where copying & pasting to new document, here’s the scenario:



      I am using InDesign with Middle East capabilities, create a blank document:

      - Flow in Word Document,

      - Styling with Character and Paragraph Styles,

      - Opening New Document (Template)

      - Pasting all the content to the Template


      And here’s where Clear Overrides function needs to be used, since the text gets overrides: Right To Left text direction

      Seems like changing Paragraph Composer in the InDesign Preferences doesn’t work, also setting the defaults for new documents doesn’t work either.



      Any ideas?
