EditLive! 9 End User Help : Language and Text Direction

EditLive! has several tools for setting the language and text direction of content in the editor.

Text Direction

Text direction can be changed using using the " Left to Right Text" and " Right to Left Text" menu items. By default, these are in the Format menu. These buttons change the text direction for the current paragraph only.

Content Language

The "Content Language" drop-down lets you specify the language for the selected text. This also sets the text direction for this text.  Specifying the language within the editor can assist users who use screen readers and search engines that index the site.

To remove the language, select the text and click the "Remove Language" item on the drop-down.
