hi fahad

> Does it support RTL languages?

last time i've had a look at laidout, it did not support languages...

but the latest news on the laidout website says that tom is debugging
the text tool... so, it might be usable now! : - )

but you know, it's laidout!
before going for the serious long term goals:

"The loooong term goal for adequacy is TeX like line breaking in
arbitrarily shaped areas, capable of right to left, left to right and
vertical text, as well as OpenType features."


it had to support multi color fonts!


if you want to contribute to laidout's code i'm pretty sure that tom
will be delighted to welcome you!

on the other side you will be part of one of the coolest and most
amazing programs you have ever seen! :-)
