I am typing Hebrew using the SBL font with paragraph style set left to right. According to the keyboard viewer, when I type Shift+; the Sof Pasuk (:) should appear at the end of the Hebrew line. Instead, it jumps to the beginning of the line. How can I get it to finish off the line?
That is simple: You as you will note, in the Toolbar and in the Paragraph Style setup, there is a Directionality button beside the alignment buttons. You’ve set the paragraph to be right aligned, but the Directionality button is set from left to right.
This is what you should do:
- In the Toolbar (or in the Paragraph Style setup) click the Directionality button, so the arrow there points to the left (i.e., from Right to Left).
- If you need to, set the alignment again (the Directionality may reverse the alignment), and save the changes to the style.
