Summary12349: RTL languages not dispayed correctly in the admin editor

When editing questions etc using the wysiwyg editor is incorrectly set as LTR

Editors for RTL languages should display in RTL

This can cause layout issues as users incorrectly apply unnecessary text alignment

Steps To Reproduce

Create a dual language survey where the secondary language is Arabic

Create a question and switch to the Arabic tab

Toolbars are displayed LTR
Text is displayed LTR

View source code:
Editor utilises LTR in its styling.

Additional Information

One suggestion may be to switch your admin language to the alternate language. While that works its very clumsy and the alternate problem occurs. In other words the English editor is now displaying in RTL.

Do you know if this is possible, Carsten?

Sure it is. Correct behaviour should be that the CKEditor RTL orientation should be the one of the survey language, not admin interface language.
