Hi,

I have a client that made a document on a computer that was set up to type a "right to left" language unlike English which is a "left to right" language.

Now, he's taken that document onto a normal computer but can't seem to turn off the right-to-left option within that document. He also cant copy/paste the text out, because it copies the right-to-left attribute

Can anyone shed some light onto this?

Thanks
Dan
