    Hi David! As far as I can check; there isn't any specific setting for setting PDF Editor text to RTL. You can only align it to the right side; which you've already done.

    But as the text in question is the paragraph; you can add CSS to set its direction to RTL. As an example, please check the following screenshots:

    The added CSS text is as follows:

    <div style="text-align: right; direction: rtl"><!-- the content comes here --></div>

    Please give this method a try. In case this doesn't help; let us know.

    Thank you!

    i steel have a problem when I want to insert from a multi-choice component.



    The dots/numbers are on the left instead of on the right. can jotform fix it? or maybe give me the option to change the color of the dot to white (to make them disappear on white background)

    Hello! Unfortunately, in PDF submission reports, there isn't a way to apply CSS to single checkboxes or multiple choice elements; so changing color of the bullets won't be possible.

    In PDF submission reports, CSS can only be applied to the paragraph elements.

    Apart from this, if you want us to escalate your requirement of RTL support in PDF; then please let us know. We'll do the needful.

    Our apologies for the inconvenience.

    yes, I would like to escalate.

    I'm trying to achieve that for multi-choice questions each answer will show on a new line while the direction is RTL

    Do you need any more information from me, to help me find a proper solution?

    Thank you.
