the source document was formatted for a language with right to left writing. You should either check in the source doc yourself or ask the client to fix this and re-create the .itd file for you.

text alignment May 12, 2010

I am afraid, I did not describe the problem properly. I will try now: Client sent me word document. And when I want to open word or ppt document in sdlx to translate, source language is aligned properly to the left but target part is aligned to the right and the last symbol shows in the beginning. Sometimes, when I want to move cursor to the right with the arrow, the cursor goes to the left. This does not always happen. It was happening with my old sdlx versions.

Set the translation font May 13, 2010

In order to set the correct text direction in SDL Edit, select View -> Set Translation Font and from the Script dropdonw list, select the desired language.

thanks all for your tips. Fonts were reset onto Arabic automatically and that's why the direction was confusing.
