This is the "Logical" behaviour is it was named over two decades ago. Go to the menu InDesign > Preferences > Right-to-Left, then from cursor movement drop menu choose "Visual"
Although Logical behaviour may not appear to act logically to you at first, however if you work on an English/Arabic publication where you need combine RTL and LTR together in same line, you'll find cursor movement as logical in a sense that each time you press right arrow on the keyboard the cursor will always move to next character regardless whether the text is Arabic or English. While if you select Visual in the Preferences settings and work on a multilingual publication, cursor will behave as expected for Arabic text but Illogical within an English word and sentence. Try it.
Ahaln, Mr. Zaid,
You don't how much I'm happy to see your name shining in this page , I'm really proud of you and it is such an honor writing to you.
Thanks for the InDsign solution, and it works well, any solutions for the Ps and Ai please?
Glad I could help my dear.
Cursor behaviour can only be controlled in InDesign at the way mentioned earlier since InDesign deals with long text. There isn't such control in Photoshop and Illustrator unfortunately.
As I though, because I spent lots of time looking fo a solution, I hope that we can report that to Adobe technical Dept. millions of Arab users waiting for this problem to be solved.
Have a nice day Mr. Zaid.
