Thanks Michael. I have committed some significant changes to the
BiDi interface just now which greatly simplify things. What is
(1) add a checkbox to the Paragraph dialogue; the ID for the
checkbox label is 'AP_STRING_ID_DLG_Para_DomDirection'. (on
the unix version I placed it on the right side of the alignment
combo) There is no special logic required, just look for the various
#ifdef BIDI_ENABLED in the XP dialogue to see what functions
need to be added to the win32 dialogue.
(2) add a checkbox to the Preferences dialogue. This one should
go on the 'Other' tab, you may want to add a frame around it with a
label. The ID for the frame label is
'AP_STRING_ID_DLG_Options_Label_BiDiOptions' and the ID for
the label of the checkbox itself is
Again, have a look at the various #ifdef BIDI_ENABLED in the XP
version of the Preferences dialogue.
I hope this is sufficient information; if not please let me know.
