"Mirror Layout Tool" and right-to-left language support?


I'm using FM Advanced 11 to enter text in right-to-left languages (Arabic, Hebrew, etc).

Even though I read in a FM release the following....

 "FileMaker 10 includes the powerful Mirror Layout tool that meets the rules of writing direction. FileMaker users can now switch in one click from the English Layout geometry (Left To Right oriented) to an Arabic one (Right To Left)."

.... I cannot find anything related to this anywhere in the documentation.

My goal is for a field to support right-to-left text correctly, so even if the Mirror Layout Tool was ultimately not released, I am still trying to figure out how to accomplish this.
