Sometimes when I'm typing, text orientation changes from
RTL, but I am not able to find any shortcut to change the text direction on Windows.
How can I change the text direction inside a text box or a text area?
To switch between
RTL (Right-To-Left) and
LTR (Left-To-Right) text directions, you need to click Ctrl+Shift:
Ctrl+Left Shift for
Ctrl+Right Shift for
To change the direction of the whole text, select all of it (Ctrl+A) before changing the text direction.
I struggled to fix a similar issue - it turned out to be limited to Office applications (inc. Outlook) and was caused by having Hebrew listed as an editing language (Options>Language>Choose Editing Languages).
Removing it and restarting all Office applications solved the problem.
