In the AEM classic UI, an author entering text in Hebrew can switch the editor to right-to-left mode with the keyboard shortcut ctrl-shift-x.

Unfortunately, this is not possible anymore in AEM’s granite or touch ui. While it sounds strange to create a keyboard shortcut to a touch ui, it is still helpful to have that ability when working from a desktop or laptop computer, so here is a package that implements this functionality:

rte-rtl-switch.zip

This works in both the inline and the full screen rich text editor and has been tested in Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

Simply install to you AEM instance using the package manager and the keyboard shortcut works.

enjoy!
