Arabic language support request


Dear Sublime Text developers,

I am writing to request support for the Arabic language in Sublime Text.

Currently, when I type Arabic text in Sublime Text, the letters are flipped and not properly aligned. This makes it difficult and frustrating to read and write Arabic in Sublime Text.

I understand that Sublime Text is a powerful text editor with many features. I am a big fan of Sublime Text and I use it for many of my coding projects. I believe that adding support for the Arabic language would make Sublime Text even more versatile and accessible to a wider audience.

I would be grateful if you could consider adding support for the Arabic language to Sublime Text in the near future. I believe that this would be a valuable addition to the software and would make it more appealing to a wider range of users.

Thank you for your time and consideration.



Hello, this pops up from time to time:
TLDR; It’s not likely to happen, as it would require huge rewrites in the codebase.
