Enabling right-to-left text

If you are creating Elucidat Projects in different languages, you may need to enable right-to-left text direction so that languages such as Arabic or Hebrew can be displayed correctly. You can find out more about creating courses in multiple languages by reading our Feature Focus: Master courses and Variations.

Enabling right-to-left text not only ensures that text is in the correct direction but also changes any interactions or elements that follow a sequential direction. For example, the direction of a Carousel will be reversed when right-to-left text is enabled.

Tip: Enabling right to left text will not amend the layout of the page itself. This means that the direction of Columns will not be altered, only the text within them. If you’re using Columns for a Project using right-to-left text, you’ll need to amend their direction manually in Layout.

 

You can enable right-to-left text for the whole Project at once or you can individually set it for titles.

 

Enabling right to left text for the whole Project

1. To change the text to read Right to left, open the Project you'd like to change.

2. Open any page in Author.

3. Select the Edit menu on the top right of the page. This contains settings that affect the entire Project:
