If you are creating Elucidat Projects in different languages, you may need to enable right-to-left text direction so that languages which read right-to-left, such as Arabic or Hebrew, can be displayed correctly. You can find out more about creating courses in multiple languages by reading Feature Focus: Parent 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 the Columns part 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. For more information about how to do this, see Moving parts around the page.|
