I work on RTL (hebrew support) sites. But when i buy PSD templates from markets (like themeforest, Designmodo etc) they saved in LTR (english version).

The problem.
If for example i open file named "about.psd" from "some-psd-template-from-theme-forest" in photoshop CC (hebrew support) and want to change the heading from "hello" to "שלום" -  its imposibble to change the text area to RTL direction (no matter what).

The only solution is to copy from other file "text area" and duplicate this area endless times. Very anoying.

Howdy Ezra,

You are correct.  And we know that this is a problem for users that design content for the Middle East and India.  So, we are currently working on a nifty solution.  Look for this to be addressed in a future product release (not the upcoming dot release).  I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the results.


p.s. -- if you have other bug with Hebrew support, I'm your guy.  Please ping me here or send email to david <dot> mohr <at> adobe <dot> com.
