Support for “right-to-left” languages has been improved in 4th Dimension 2004.4 under Windows. It is now possible to configure a 4D database so that its interface (forms and menus) is automatically inverted in Custom Menus mode.

To configure “right-to-left” languages in Custom Menus mode under Windows:

1. Open Preferences.
2. Select the Database theme.
3. Select the Script Manager page.
4. Select No, Automatic, or Yes.

No: When this option is selected, the database never switches to “right-to-left” mode, even if the operating system is configured in this mode.

Automatic: When this option is selected, the database automatically switches to “right-to-left” mode when the operating system is configured in this mode.

Yes: When this option is selected, the database immediately switches to “right-to-left mode, even if the operating system is configured in the conventional (left-to-right) mode.
