    How to make Arabian form right-to-left

    Asked by hajer on February 16, 2016 at 01:28 AM

    Hi JotForm Team.. 


    So, I would like to create a form in Arabic. That's no problem . But what i'm having trouble with is having the text to be written from Right to left bcz that's how Arabic is written.. 

    the only thing I found was text alignment .. Is there a way to get the text be written from right to left ?

    Kindly advice. !!

    You may want to try adding the following CSS code to your form to make it appear right-to-left:

    .form-sub-label {direction:rtl;unicode-bidi:bidi-override;}
    .form-all {direction:rtl;}
    .form-line-column,.form-label-right,.form-radio-item {float:right;}

    You can inject CSS to your form by following this guide: How to Inject Custom CSS Codes.

    Please also note that we highly recommend that you create your forms in English first, and then use the Language Translator tool to translate your form into any desired local language. You can see the guide about How to make your forms multilingual. This is to ensure that your form doesn't get accidentally suspended by our Phishing Detector tool if the tool can't recognize Arabian text that you are using on the form, because this way it can still see the English version of your form.
