editing text in hebrew

I'm trying to align the text in hebrew to the right, and nothing works.
it started fine, and then for some reason the text moved to the left.
The paragraph now starts half way to the left, and the space bar moves the cursor(not text) from the beginning of the paragraph to the right.
back/delete key moves the text to the left, removing letters from the left.
What should I do please?
Thanks!

I tried again, kept writing, and while I was writing, the text moved outside the text box border, and then back...in and out, and was aligning to the right.
So, it looks ok, but the way the text was moving, doesn't look it should be like that.
Any tips to write normally from right to left, without text moving forth and back ?

..something else I noticed, after I finished the paragraph, with the cursor after the last letter on the left, pressing 'return' button, moves the last line down.

not published yet. The three lines of text look maybe ok, but it took a real effort to finish them. I deleted the original text, and started writing, and the whole thing went out of control.I use qwerty, phonetical replacements of hebrew letters.
But writing email or in TextEdit, for example, I have no problem.
The template is Fashion.
Thank you!

I searched the forum for similar problems, and found one, 2 years ago.
I used the html snippet given then, but it doesn't help ::
<!--
<p style="direction:rtl"> your text here </p>
-->
(Ignore <!-- and --> those are there to stop the code from being interpreted).

Can it be that in 2 years this problem is not solved yet ?
Maybe somebody knows some tool that can produce a correct RTL text to be pasted into the text widget in Yola ?

Hello,

It does appear that you are inputting the correct code and it should be working. In order for us to look at this, it would be really helpful to have your domain name. What you provided earlier was your site's name. Is your site published online? If so, please share the address it is published to. Thanks!

I think it looks fine now. I'm using TextEdit and Bean, then copy-paste.
But would be really nice if Yola had some small text editor for RTL.
Thanks!

Glad to hear it is working now. For the time being, this is not on our list of things to implement, however, we will consider it for future releases.
