I remember I used to change the direction of text using keyboard shortcuts (like Command-Control-Right Arrow), but it doesn't work anymore. How can I re-enable it? I found this page about this topic from Apple, but none of these work.

  • What app are you using?

Go the System Prefs/Keyboard/Input Sources/Arabic (or whatever script you are using) and make sure the box for Enable Keyboard Shortcuts is checked.
