I beleive this might’ve been brought up before but I don’t see it fixed. RTL (right to left) languages currently show left to right which is very confusing when I’m trying to right. I hope this will be fixed soon. Also the the cursor behaves very weirdly; I’ve attached a GIF showing the current behavior.
Does pasting seem to work ? (i.e. is the problem seen mainly in typing character by character ?)
Bike certainly does keep sentences left-aligned even with RTL languages, and although I’m not typing here with a language which updates character variants as one enters successive characters, I am seeing a sort of flashing and a ghost copy of the sentence appearing and disappearing to the right of the sentence at every word boundary.
I think there are at least two things happening here.
Bike should partially support RTL languages. In particular you should be able to type RTL, but the text layout will still be aligned to the left side of the screen. This isn’t ideal, and maybe I will fix someday, but it’s a big job and I hope the current behavior makes RTL at least partially editable and readable.
When typing RTL Bike’s text animations don’t work right. Until I fix that you can disable these animations using Bike > Settings > Editor > Enable typing animations (uncheck it!)
I will eventually get to these things, but still won’t be for a while I think. For the future work on filtering outline I will be doing some code reorganization that should make solving these problems easier. So sometime after that I think.
