Is it possible to write and read Arabic in Open Office? I download the Dutch version of Open Office and its working great, but i cant figure out how to write in Arabic.
Do i need to download an update or a complete different version of OPen Office, or am i just overlooking something here :S
Already looked at the homepage of Open Office but couldnt find anything usefull.
Found it out myself :)
Just download a version of Open Office (doesnt need to be arabic, this is only for the gui you want). Then goto Tools->Preferences->Language Settings and enable CTL and choose a default language for CTL. Now set-up XP to support Arabic and install an arabic keyboard lay-out. strat Open Office, switch to the arabic keyboard lay-out and the cursor will jump to the right and you can start typing :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
