Good day everyone,
Seven weeks ago, I started learning Vim. I tried it in the past a lot, but this time wasn't like every instance in the past. I got it, and Vim became a habit that I can't quit. I even wrote my vimrc and I can't believe that I lived in an era where I used to use glorified notepad(s). I am by no means an expert or an intermediate level Vimmer. I am just a noob who wants to continue using Vim in his daily programming life. This sounds more romantic than pragmatic but it is the truth.
This week, I needed to edit files that contain languages other than English. It is Arabic, but the problem applies also to Hebrew and Farsi(Persian). It was a shock to me, that Vim doesn't support bidirectional text. The (not so good) solution is to have two tabs one left to right and the other right to left, but that is quit ugly in my opinion. The only editor on my machine that doesn't support bidi text is
edit(The command line editor in Windows!).
Is there a solution, or should I revert back to Notepad++ and forget about Vim?
I find it hard to keep switching between Notepad++ and Vim because I edit lots of files that contain bidi text.
