Text starts from right to left Word 2003
Posted on 2007-08-07
I'm an IT tech over here in Iraq. Had a user pick up a lagtop from Baghdad and she removed the Language Aribic but it always started a new word document from right to left. The only fix I could come up with was to toggle Left ALT + Shift + 0 as if there were still two Languages within the Control Pannel Regional settings.
Ok now a month ago I had a user a with similar problem and he always struggled at creating a Word document since it started from right to left. Well the ALT shift didn't work and while I was in Word I found the settings that had Engish and Aribic was grayed out and it took me awile to figure how to make English the default and thus I could then remove Aribic all together and then opening up a new word document all was good where it then typed left to right. I then went over to the girls laptop and corrected it on her machine.
Now here is the problem I have a third user and it's been over a month since I did this and I can't seem to find out where that setting is at in Word. It's not in the obovious place under Tools and Language, So does anyone know where I was at and belive me I'll do some screen shiots this time.
