RE: How to change the text diection ?
Hi there!

RTL text is a feature that we've considered implementing many times. Were it easier to do, it would already be in Featurific! I think we can add this feature, but I'll need some more information regarding how RTL (right to left) text works. I'm under the impression that the word order within the sentence is what needs to be reversed. In other words, the following (LTR) text:

Hello, this is some text.

Would be the following in RTL text:

text some is this, Hello.

Is this correct?
-Rich


For reference, here's as for as I got with the last Featurific user who requested RTL support:

So, you're going to have to help me on Persian here... According to the problem as you've described it, it seems that the letters in Persian words are written left-to-right, but the words in Persian sentences are written right-to-left? Is this how other right-to-left languages work as well? (e.g. arabic)

Yes the sentences should be displayed that way

an example in Arabic

my name is mena

أنا اسمى مينا

Not :

مينا اسمى أنا

So the sentences would by displayed from right to left not the opposite

Well, yes the sentences are also written from right to left, and other languages i guess though as far as i know Arabic is written from right to left... but according to the person who asks about the problem so it's about the sentences are displayed wrong so it should be displayed from RTL

Thanks,
Mena
Also the beginning for the sentences should be from RTL. i mean to start from the right side in writing like this

أنا اسمى مينا

Hi Mena,

I've done some work on getting RTL support within Featurific. Please try using the following test version of the plugin:

http://featurific.com/files/featurific-f...-1.4.6.zip

I think I've made some progress, but I think there are still some problems. Can you experiment with this version and tell me what works and doesn't work? (There is an RTL checkbox on the options page that you'll have to check, by the way).

Thanks, and talk to you soon! Smile

Hi, Rich
Okay, I downloaed it and it's working fine, the sentences are displayed fine but it's alignment isn't from right to left

Every thing else is working fine.

Thank you,
Mena

That's great to hear, Mena! (Phew! Smile )

It's naturally hard for me to develop RTL support since I don't speak or read a lick of Persian, Urdu, Arabic, etc... Smile So, I was essentially guessing. So it's good to find out that my guess was correct! Smile Can you send me a URL (or at least a screenshot) that shows your slideshow in action? This will make it easier to fix the 'left alignment' issue.

Thanks! Smile

RE: How to change the text diection ?
Hi again, Mena!

I think I'm done with the final version of the RTL changes. Can you please give the following version a shot and let me know how it works for you?

http://featurific.com/files/featurific-f...-1.4.7.zip

Specifically, please try one of the templates marked as "(Right Justified)".

Thanks, and you're welcome! Smile
