RTL support

Unfortunately, WordPerfect Office does not have RTL (right-to-left) support. This means that you cannot use it to compose texts in Hebrew, Arabic, Aramaic, Farsi, Urdu and other RTL languages.By way of comparison, Microsoft Office, Open Office and several other Office suites do have RTL support.

That is a great pity. Not only are these RTL languages important (the Old Testament was written in Hebrew and Aramaic), it is also bad for Corel. Hundreds of millions of WordPerfect users around the world who speak and write these languages have been forced to abandon it in favor of its competitors. Users of older versions of WordPerfect are constantly reminded to upgrade to the latest version. A very large number will not do so without RTL support. This feature request has been made by many users over the years, yet Corel has decided not to invest in adding this vital feature. If Corel wants to keep its customers it must add RTL support without further delay.
