Please add support for right-to-left languages like Persian, Hebrew and Arabic.

    we struggled a lot to find a good way to implement RTL languages, but we may have a solution and we want to work on it when we came back from WWDC. Can you be interested in beta testing an RTL version of Bear?

    Yes sure. As Persian is my native language, I can help you with testing it.

    Great, I'll mark your email and we'll get in touch when we have something testable.

    What's the status of the RTL version?
    Is it possible to get it, even at a beta stage?
    This is a deal breaker to me.

    Hi Leon,

    this is actually on hold due to a technical issue we are trying to solve. In the future we'll do a special beta program for RTL users, do you want to be included?

    I would be more than happy you add me to the list of beta tester for RTL. I really like the app.

    Is there an update on this thread? I’m considering moving all my note taking to Bear, and while most of them is in English, some are in Hebrew. To commit to Bear for the long run, knowing what your plans for RTL is critical.

    Thanks. Yaniv

    Hi Yaniv,

    We had to move RTL support after the release of the new editor/parser for technical (and practical) reasons. At the moment we don't have a release scheduled for RTL, but I'm afraid it won't be available this year.

    I'm in a similar situation to Yaniv above -- wanting to switch over from Evernote but needing RTL support. Would love to help beta test!
