Short description of error
middle eastern writing formats (Persian, Arabic) are not working.

blender default is English, When trying to name something in other languages blender just does squares:

Event Timeline

T51283: It's for macOS, and it's from 2017

We implemented those for windows and linux a while back, would be great to get it for OSX as well,

well their implement is now broken for middle eastern.

Closing this since Blender doesn't support RTL languages for text input at the moment.
