Engage 360: Enabling Right-to-Left Language Support
Text that appears on your Engage 360 player defaults to a left-to-right orientation. However, you can enable right-to-left language support if you're using a right-to-left language, such as Hebrew or Arabic.

Enabling Right-to-Left Orientation for Player Elements
First, make sure you're using a player font that supports right-to-left text—such as Arial Unicode MS or Microsoft Sans Serif—then follow these steps:
- Click Player on the Engage ribbon.
- When the Player Properties window appears, click Other on the ribbon.
- Use the Text is read from drop-down to select Right to Left.
- Click OK.
All player elements switch positions for right-to-left languages to give learners the best experience.
Enabling Right-to-Left Orientation on Interaction Content
The steps above change the text direction for player elements, such as buttons and messages. To display your interaction content in a right-to-left orientation, make sure the Right-to-Left Text Direction button is selected when you enter or edit text. You'll find this button on the Format Text tab on the Engage ribbon, but it'll only show if you have a right-to-left keyboard input language installed on your computer.
Note: Step titles can't be displayed in a right-to-left orientation. However, you can remove the steps titles if you'd prefer. Just delete the text in each step title.
Saving Player Changes
When you click OK to close the Player Properties window, Engage saves your player customizations in your project file.
If you'd like to use the same customizations in other projects, click Current Player on the ribbon and choose Save. Enter a name for your custom player if you're prompted and click OK.
To learn more about the Current Player options, see this user guide.
