Setting text flow direction for an element
Use this functionality judiciously. A report that changes the direction of text too much can be confusing and difficult to read. If the information is in two languages that use different text flow directions, consider translating the content so that it is in one language. If that is not possible, minimize the number of times the text direction changes and try to place sections contiguously by language.
To set the text direction for an element, select the element, and in Property Editor, under Properties, choose Advanced. In the Advanced properties page, expand Text, and set the Text direction property, as shown in Figure 7‑13.
