how to reverse the writing/+wording/+lining direction ? and reading/working direction of regex / search engine ?



  • hello
    in a support question and issue thread someone isnt able to use the regex on arabic text (hebrew too) , because the regex reads the text in wron direction . further i havent found a way to reverse writing directions or word-string-order . there is a possibility to reverse the lines order (end to begin(bottom to top)) with a plugin :“reverse lines” , also there is a text direction (rtl or rtl) change option in view menue , but that is not helpful much here .

    sure i want to be able to read and search and write in the opposite direction too , for experiment and play . but it would be ok if i could simply transform text into different order . how to change regex working direction would be another question , it depends if it is neccesary .

    are there regex possibilities to transform writing direction or how to manage ? scripts ?
    backward search in regex is disabled , but can be activated , is it helpful ?

    preface definitions :
    writing direction(wri) : left to right (ltr) or right to left (rtl)
    wording direction (wor): ltr or rtl
    lining direction (lin): top to bottom (ttb) or bottom to top (btt)

    how can i make the text (wri-ltr, wor-ltr, lin-ttb) :

    1. abcd 1234
    2. arabic hebrew
    3. schlierenkontrast heisenbergsche interferenzunschärfe

    case 1) into (wri-ltr , wor-rtl , lin-ttb):
    1234 abcd 1.
    hebrew arabic 2.
    interferenzunschärfe heisenbergsche schlierenkontrast 3.

    case 2) or into (wri-ltr , wor-rtl , lin-btt):
    interferenzunschärfe heisenbergsche schlierenkontrast 3.
    hebrew arabic 2.
    1234 abcd 1.

    case 3) or into (wri-rtl , wor-ltr , lin-ttb):
    .1 dcba 4321
    .2 cibara werbeh
    .3 tsartnoknereilhcs ehcsgrebneseih efrähcsnuznerefretni

    case 4) or into (wri-rtl , wor-rtl , lin-ttb):
    4321 dcba .1
    werbeh cibara .2
    efrähcsnuznerefretni ehcsgrebneseih tsartnoknereilhcs .3

    case 5) or into (wri-rtl , wor-rtl , lin-btt):
    efrähcsnuznerefretni ehcsgrebneseih tsartnoknereilhcs .3
    werbeh cibara .2
    4321 dcba .1
