I'd love to be able to write rmarkdown text in Hebrew and have it rendered properly from right-to-left.
Here are some old requests regarding this:

And here is a relevant issue/PR on Ace that supposed to now make this feature available to also implement in RStudio: ajaxorg/ace#3400

Thanks.

@talgalili תודה for the enhancement request. We'll take a look at it as we continue to develop new versions of RStudio.

My understanding is that RTL text support should be improving with the next version of Ace. Can you try out the version at #3820 and let us know if that does indeed appear to be the case? If so, then this is something we could potentially target for v1.3.

Note that you'll need to toggle the 'Rtl text' option in the options sidebar (it's 3rd from the bottom)

Same problem exists for Persian / Arabic text. Would be great if fixed.

Hi @kevinushey , how can I test the version from #3820? (can you maybe send me an .exe url to try and install? and some suggestion on how to toggle the RTL in this version? Thanks!)

Hi,
I use <div text-align: right; dir="rtl"> to write in Hebrew, and for sentences that combine both languages I split the sentence into few rows, annoying but it works.

for example:
אני ארשום עברית ב-
R
ע"י כתיבת המילה באגנלית בצורה נפרדת.
