    Persian text disarray when the field size is reduced

    MatsT

      Summary

      Persian text disarray when the field size is reduced

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      13

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.9.2

      Description of the issue

      Hello,

      I have found the following error when I worked with Persian text in FileMaker 13. Example 1 (picture) shows the Persian text as it was entered. If you reduce the field size, so the text is distributed on several lines, characters and words show up in total disarray (Example 2). Look for example on the order of parentheses.

      Sincerely

      MatsT

               Mats T:

               Thank you for your post.

               Even though FileMaker Pro is not available in Farsi, how are you entering the data?

               Are Persian characters read from left to right?  Or, right to left?  I know Arabic is written right to left, and since FileMaker Pro will break if a word cannot fit into the remaining space, the breaking of characters appears to be correct if reading right to left.

                 Thanks for the clarification response, 
                  
                 - the Persian text is pasted from Excel. At a closer look, I see that the text is correct, provided that you read from right to left; 
                  
                 Thanks again, Mats T
