This script reverses the direction of selected text layers. This is a common task required when entering or copying and pasting RightToLeft (RTL) languages.

This script also works in Adobe Photoshop (Watch demo video for install instructions). To run it in Photoshop install the script in the Scripts folder which is located inside the Presets folder in the Photoshop app folder.

For Arabic text please use the ArabicText script

Since After Effects is built to work with text that flows from left to right, certain directional animation presets like "Typewriter" don't work with RTL languages. We can't re-engineer all of the presets but we will try to do some of the popular ones:  

RTL Animation Presets: (Install in Presets folder)

Typewriter-RTL - ($0.99) Currently this preset only works with 2 keyframes that reveal the text from beginning to end.
