Hebrew/Arabic in pargentheses

I often write (usually in translated quotations) a word in Hebrew or Arabic in parentheses. If this occurs before the end of a sentence and then comes a dot followed by a note number (usually the reference to the quotation) then a mess results. I have not found a way to overcome this problem.

Well, something odd occurs when you insert a footnote/endnote just after ")" or "." of the following text:

Left to Right Text (Hebrew or Arabic words).

I'm not very sure but it may be a bug. A workaround is to insert a Left to Right Marker before inserting a footnote/endnote. An easy way to do so would be to use the following macro instead of Footnote command.

Code: Select all

Menu ':Insert:Directionality Marker:Left to Right Marker'
Menu ':Insert:Footnote'
