  • Hi Sh_Black_Hole,

    Customers can use any Unicode character in any part of the product. So certainly Right-To-Left characters are allowed. However, the Visual Studio interface is still Left-To-Right therefore the RTL display may re-arrange the characters in an unwanted manner.

    More information: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vsarch/thread/52774de3-1050-405b-81f8-c533dbee3233#cb925352-0662-4c9b-8951-e9e412d60264

    If you still have any further concern about this issue, you can post it to Visual Studio Visualization & Modeling Tools http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vsarch/threads forum for a better support.

    Thank you for your understanding!

    Dear lucy-liu

    If read below of that thread u can see I post same question but when after a year no answer post so i open this thread. Next if u see my 2 screen shots u can see that 2nd not in Visualization & Modeling and it's in code editor. At Last exactly my question is how to solve re-arrange  in unwanted manner and it's exactly show in screen shot. But if u can't understand problem I attache screen shouts with some edit that show my problem in below.

    Finally I need some control like Microsoft word text direction button in VS IDE to change direction of line and make some line direction to RTL to write efficient comment and model in my own language (Farsi/Persian).

  • thanks breathfish

    So if I cant use VS to make good comment in own language, can I use some tools or plugin that help me to document my project? or can I integrate some other text editor that support this possibility to VS IDE? or any trick for solve this problem?
