RTL for Confluence

RTL for Confluence allows users to write content in any RTL language like Hebrew, Persian and Arabic. It is used by thousands of users worldwide.

The app provides right-to-left language support on Confluence pages, and supports English and Arabic/Hebrew texts together.

If you're willing to write your Confluence pages in one of those languages, you should use RTL for Confluence app which adds two buttons to the TinyMCE editor to enable changing text direction from Left to Right (LTR) and Right to Left (RTL).

When selecting a direction, the corresponding alignment button is also activated

When RTL for Confluence is installed:

  • Page title is centered, to fit both right-to-left (RTL) or left-to-right (LTR) directions

  • The cursor position is affected by the direction of the document. When the document is right-to-left, the cursor is located at the far right of the page and vice versa.

  • Simple lists, bulleted lists, numbered list and mixed lists are either right-to-left (RTL) or left-to-right (LTR)

  • Tab key on keyboard as well as indent / outdent toolbar buttons responses the document direction

  • Confluence Task list macro, with the ability to give each task an assignee and due date  (in use in Meeting Notes template, under Action Items section) fits both right-to-left (RTL) or left-to-right (LTR) directions

  • Copy-past RTL based texts/tables to your Confluence pages are supported

RTL for Confluence will not make changes to existing content. After installing the app, we will make sure to apply RTL direction and right alignment to new pages as well as to new elements added to existing pages.

Applying the RTL direction to existing content on the page will not necessarily lead to the desired results. For example - applying the opposite direction to an existing table will reverse the order of the columns in the table.
