Hi Goalscape,

I know this is not a new subject, have you reach a solution to insert RTL text inputs in Goalscape Desktop app? or you are not willing to do so.

    Hello Eisa

    Thanks for your inquiry.

    We are investigating right-to-left character input for Notes and Comments text and may well implement it prior to providing support for a full Arabic language version. We cannot however indicate any delivery date for this functionality.

    All the best

    Dear Mr.Richard,

    I Think the easiest way is to enable RTL Unicode text insertion function in the Goals/Subgoals/Notes fields, we are not looking for fully localized RTL interface.

    I Think you can do it without much efforts. Besides, other customers like myself raised this issue for a number of years without someone from Goalscape even trying.

    Hello Eisa

    Thanks for your follow-up.

    For the Notes and Comment text we are constrained by the functionality available in the Adobe rich text format (rtf), which is not as easy to configure as (say) a html field.

    We are however investigating the options here, with a view to providing support for right-to-left character input as a step towards full Arabic language support. Watch out for announcements...

    Hello Eisa

    In case you missed our announcements, we released the new Goalscape (3.0) Web App last year – and it supports Arabic script (based on your browser's locale settings).

    You can login here with your existing Goalscape credentials and start a new Free Trial – and you can easily migrate your old Online project(s).

    Enjoy the journey – more than ever!
