I have a weird one. I am copying Farsi text from a Word document into an InDesign document and the text is getting transposed. I know Farsi reads right to left but when I paste it into InDesign it comes out the other way – left to right.
What is weird is that if I paste it back into Word, it is in the correct order, so it’s not getting transposed in the copy. Only in the paste into InDesign. I’ve looked for a command that would retain the correct orientation, but no luck. I hope I don’t have to re-key this text letter-for-letter

Thanks for the reply Kalleheikki,
I ended up using the Adobe World Ready Paragraph Composer in the Paragraph drop down menu. That plus the Glyph pane made it doable. I learned that Farsi has different initial, medial and terminal characters. I see why my company has never done anything but Roman alphabet languages up until now. ☺

Ah, good to know there’s that option. Been a while since I’ve had to do right-to-left.
