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 :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
