Earlier I posted a thread because my MS Word files are reversed. This must have happened because I'm working for a client in Israel, and he probably normally works from right to left (even though the file he sent me in Spanish is written from left to right.)

I've searched Help in Word and searched on-line, but can't find any information that helps. I tried selecting English in the Office Tools option on the Start menu, and that made no difference, and all the settings under "Regions and Languages" in the Start menu are set to English.

Can anyone tell me how to restore the layout so that text appears on the screen from the left to right?

Thanks to Henrik and P Forgas who responded to my earlier post, this is fixed. (I found the reverse direction buttons under "Customize -- > Format").
