RTL Languages support

ExamDeveloper also supports RTL (Right-to-Left) languages, that is languages whose text is written and read from fight right to left. The text in RTL languages is therefore right-aligned, The the direction of the cursor is RTL for alphabets and LTR for numbers, with the overall cursor moving in RTL direction for entire sentences. These languages include Arabic and Hebrew, which are currently selectable via the Code for Qti Export drop-down, as these are recognized by the Pearson VUE test driver.

To specify that a Language Code that uses RTL cursor movement, select the Is RTL check box corresponding to that Language Code. This results in the cursor movement following the RTL direction when this Language Code is selected in Questions.

Image Modified

When an RTL-enabled Language Code is selected in the Write Question page, the text appears right-aligned as seen below.

Note

To enter the text in an RTL language script such as Arabic, you can either install an Arabic keyboard in Windows and manually enter the text, or copy and paste the Arabic text from a relevant source.
