[BUG] [Messaging app]
[BUG] [Notes search function]

[BUG] [Contacts search function]
[BUG] [Music player search function]
[BUG] [Music player meta ID3 editor]
[BUG] [Global search in home screen]

RTL direction isn't supported in writing in RTL languages.
When writing in RTL language, text will not change direction to right to left and by this I’m not able to select any text at all, and if I want to delete a word from the text or fix a word, I'll have to delete all text and rewrite it allover again.

on the other hand, it works fine in vertical mode (In supported apps)


[MIUI Version] All V5 MIUI
[Phone] Xiaomi Mi 2
[OS] MIUI original and MIUIandroid

There is no RTL support till Android 4.2.

MIUI v5 = Android 4.1
Hello iBot,
Miui v4 support RTL just fine and Miui 5 support as well except some apps.
In fact it seems the problem is only with MIUI apps and only in horizontal mode. (vertical support RTL :eek: ).

The guys from HEBMIUI manage to fix it on MIUI GB, and Google fixed it since ICS so it worked fine on MIUI 4 but somehow something went work on the way with MIUI 5.

We can only hope someone will fine the problem and try to fix it... Maybe someone from HEBMIUI can help?

Thank you for paying attention :cool:

The code fixes bug only at places that belongs to category:
Code:
V5.TextAppearance
Within app code. So only those apps can be fixed. We can't fix 3rd party apps because they don't have MIUI code.
But if someone writes down exact places where the bug exist then maybe it can be fixed unless I find that place in app code.

I will try to fix all. But not all at once. I think I know how to do that.
But not in this week as we're testing other fixes. I will maybe contact one of you to test my fixes.

Lol.. I've checked the framework and we added that fix properly to todays release... Im not sure why its not working. I assume that MIUI changed something and our fix is not working, which is bad because I dont have yet anymore ideas to overwrite this.
