Short description of error

Graphic accents position is wrong when using hebrew text.
Original text in word:


I had to reverse the text online(blender does not support RTL text:

after pasting it into blender:

Graphic accents seem to work fine with latin words, but it looks displaced with hebrew characters.

Blend file:

RTL text: אִישׁ עַל מַחֲנֵהוּ וְאִישׁ עַל דִּגְלוֹ
Reversed text: וֹלגְדִּ לעַ שׁיאִוְ וּהנֵחֲמַ לעַ שׁיאִ

Please add text here so we can test by copy-pasting

RTL:

אִישׁ עַל מַחֲנֵהוּ וְאִישׁ עַל דִּגְלוֹ

Reversed text:

וֹלגְדִּ לעַ שׁיאִוְ וּהנֵחֲמַ לעַ שׁיאִ

If you look at the positioning of graphic accents, they get misaligned in Blender. zoom in the text in word, or notepad and compare it with how it looks in blender text.

Thanks for the report, but yes, Blender currently has poor support of complex scripts (Hebrew is not the worse, but it is also not the easiest), this is a known TODO.
