  • hi

    i used your suggestion, but it didn't work because i use number value in parenthesis not text value,

    but i found a good solution, i changed just text property of parenthesis by font color or font name and use parentheses in reverse state like )10(

    thank you

  • Hi,

    This problem is occurred with Right-to-Left languages when you are using parentheses, brackets or ...

    You can use question mark just after parentheses or type an additional letter to see the layout in correct orientation, but this is the solution!

    I suggest using a hyphen (not two, because you'll face the same issue) instead of parenthesis in your text.

    Cheers
