Re: HEBREW NOT SUPPORT CORRECT on SKYPE why?

Hi and welcome to the Skype Community,

Thanks for your report. We are aware of problems with bi-directional texts. That doesn't only affect Hebrew script, but also Arabic, Persian and other right-to-left ones. How did MSN solve this challenge? Was it showing mixed content right or left aligned?

Will this ever be fixed? This post is from 2011, and yet mixing rtl and ltr languages don't appear correctly...

I believe a reasonable algorithm would be as follows: the primary direction should be determined by the start of the text, and runs of the alternate direction should be in-place in the alternate direction.

 

It should also definitely be possible to switch direction.

 

This is an extremely frustrating issue.
