Dynamic text variables in arabic

Hello all, 

I've been applying an Arabic translation to an articulate module, I've modified the player so the module reads right to left and it seems to work fine with static text, however, when dynamic text from text variables are displayed, they are displayed left to right, which, of course, doesn't work. The user should be able to write about their country, etc. in arabic and the text is not displayed properly, I saw in this  support forum that this feature was not supported and the user had to eliminate all text variables:

I was wondering if this issue has been fixed in the latest updates.

Hi, Nora. Thanks for reaching out!

After some digging, I see that we have an open issue in Storyline where the variable reference displays Arabic characters in reverse order.

Our team is looking into its cause, and I'm tagging this discussion to our report so we can keep you posted on any new developments! Thanks for bearing with us.

Hey there, Vahid!

I'm back, and I'm so happy to share that we just released Build 3.33.20697.0 for Storyline 360. It addresses the issue where variable references in right-to-left text displayed in the reverse order.

To see all the enhancements this version has to offer, follow these steps to update your software. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!
