Text that appears on your Articulate Presenter player defaults to a left-to-right orientation. To use a right-to-left language, such as Hebrew or Arabic, just make a small change to your player. First, make sure you're using a font that supports non-Western text, such as Arial Unicode MS. Then follow these steps:
- Go to the Articulate tab on the PowerPoint ribbon and click Player.
- When the Player Properties window appears, click Other.
- Use the Text is read from drop-down to select Right to Left.
- Click OK.
Tip: In Update 3 and later for Articulate Presenter '13, the previous and next player buttons are reversed when text is read from right to left.
Saving Your Changes to the Player
Presenter saves player customizations in your project file. It's a good practice, though, to save your player separately, so you can apply the same player customizations to other courses.
To save your player, click Current Player on the Player Properties window and choose Save. Enter a name for your custom player if prompted and click OK.
For details about using the Current Player options, see Saving Your Player or Switching to a Different One.
Enabling Right-to-Left Orientation for Course Content
The steps above change the text direction for player elements, such as buttons, tabs, and messages. To display the actual content of your course in a right-to-left orientation, make sure the Right-to-Left Text Direction button is selected when you enter or edit text in PowerPoint. You'll find this button on the Home tab—but it'll only appear if you have a right-to-left keyboard input language installed on your computer.
