    Does Office 2011 supports RTL
    Like the titles says will Office 2011 support RTL text like Hebrew and Arabic?
    Because I've been using Office 2008 and it's all messed up.

    And is Iwork support it?

    Office 2008 supports RTL text, I'm sure the 2011 version will do likewise. In what way is it messed up?

    Regards.

    Umm...no it doesn't.

    And nobody knows about Office 2011 yet. Microsoft won't say, and those people who have access to 2011 information are forbidden from telling anyone.

    I just did some further research and apparently you're correct. It's supported in the Windows version only. I also have Office 2007 and I knew that it was able to enter R to L in the Hebrew language. I "assumed" my copy of Office 2008 was the same. Office 2008 only supports L to R or changing the text orientation. And yes, we'll have to wait to see what MS does with Office 2011.

    Thanks and regards.
