Description afshin 2008-12-03 16:34:36 UTC
1.I opened a document
2.I inserted a field with these steps: Insert->Fields->Other...
3.In Functions tab and Input field type I input a Persian text in Reference box.
Unfortunately input text was with LTR direction and as you know the Persian
language is with RTL direction and editing input text with LTR is hard for us
especially when we insert English words between Persian words. Please enable
changing direction when user insert text with RTL direction. Also there is this
issue in other Functions type because those input fields insert text with LTR
Thank you

Probably there should be an additional entry in the context-menu, when
right-clicking edit boxes like the one described here. This entry should be
named "Switch Text Direction" or "Right-To-Left Text" or similar. It should be
visible when CTL is enabled. 

It might not be needed in all instances, where we now have "Special
Character..." in the context-menu, but there will certainly be a lot of
opportunities once we will look for them.

I tested again and there is not any option for change direction of input fields.
The locale settings and CTL is specified on Farsi.
