No I didn't. So that was the reason. Today I applied the changes before saving it. It worked. One more issue that I need to mention here: It is true that the user can set the text to be RTL in Preferences and save the setting. But what about the Notes, Synopsis, and other features? With an Right-to-...

Yes, I know the user can set it up himself/herself, but I thought it would be better to have the setting for Arabic/Persian (Modern) as a part of drop-down menu list, like other languages you have included.

Just a suggestion.

Typographer's Quotes in Persian

Would you add a "Persian (Modern)" to your Typographer's Quotes in Preferences? It should be similar to Hebrew. The setting you have right now is used in some books but many people consider it "Old Style". It would be great if users can choose between the OLd and New Styles like ...

Thanks for the info about switching to RTL in Preferences. I did that, and also changed the fonts and some settings in Preferences and tried to save it. I quitted Scrivener and started in again and tried to load the saved Preferences to see how it works. Preferences was set up to its default and ref...

Having a localized version was only a suggestion. I don't know about the difficulties of the work. But I assume the localized version of iTune or mail in Arabic or Persian should be reversed. I never have seen a localized version of Mac. Apple doesn't make in in Persian (I guess because of the embar...

Ok, I guess I have the answer to your question. The problem is neither produced by Scrivener nor by Mac. It is Mellel's problem because it does not use the regular encoding of Arabic and Persian in Mac. So its fonts do not work properly in many other applications. My suggestion: use this font in Tex...

RTL and LTR to be added to the Preferences

I suggest RTL and LTR to be added to the Preferences. That way the software can be used for writing Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, and Urdu. It is true that we can make every page RTL manually but by setting it up in Preferences we can also set up the fonts for that as well. I tried to save my setting for...
