#3571 new defect

Right-to-left writing direction letters are not concatenated

Reported by: claudius.h@… Owned by: potlatch-dev@…
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: potlatch2 Version:
Keywords: Cc:


How to reproduce: Enter a name on a node or way feature using a language with right-to-left writing direction (arabic, hebrew, farsi,...) like "فرسی".

Result: Rendering shows each letter seperately, like "ف ر س ی" (exagerrated dispay in here)

Expected result: right-to-left letters should concatenate.

This is a known issue that is basically a Flash limitation. We will eventually be able to fix it but this will require targeting Flash Player 10 (we currently target FP9), building with Flex 4 (we use 3.5 currently), and rewriting much of the UI to use the latest Adobe framework (Spark). It's on the radar (see potlatch-dev mailing list passim) but not going to happen overnight, I'm afraid.
