Problems copying/pasting text in Arabic in Marketing Actvities side

Has anyone met the problem while copy/pasting any text in Arabic: change the order of words and signs of punctuation jump? I assume it's because of the right-to-left writing, changing keyboard language to Arabic didn't resolve the problem.

Did you try paste as plain text? Where are you copy and pasting from/to?

Yes, as plain as well. I copy from the excel document to the HTML tags. The text is mix of Arabic and Latin, so the words end up jumping.

So I have found the answer to this!

The trick is to add this piece of code at the beginning of your text block, in the html.

<div dir="rtl" lang="ar">

And then all your text reads left to right, and the punctuation is in the right place. This also applies when you have tokens, which is great!
