The Text Layout Framework supports more languages than the classic text engine, including better support for Asian languages and right-to-left languages. To see the settings for Asian and right-to-left languages, select a text field on the Stage or click on the Text tool in the toolbar and go to the Properties panel. In the Properties panel, click the flyout menu at the top right to expand options for the Properties panel. In that menu you will see checkboxes for Asian options and right-to-left Options.
So you can enable or disable those options when you are creating text fields. Enabling these options adds more options to the Properties panel when you are working with a text field. So as you scroll down, you will see extra options in Advanced Character for Asian languages like Dominant Baseline and Alignment Baseline. And then you will be able to set right to left in the Direction area, in the Paragraph section of the Properties panel. So I can check Right to Left or Left to Right. So using these new options in Flash, you have better support than ever before for Asian and right-to-left languages.
