Description

I am currently on MS-Windows (Win XP).
I am using the strawberry Perl version of Padre - updated to the latest (0.84) .

When using Padre in Arabic or in Hebrew, and opening the Help --> About - the text looks horizontally flipped , mirrored.

This is both for the English / Latin characters and both for the Hebrew and Arabic text.

Please see the screenshot files I attach.

Thanks.

Just for info:

Here is my local perl -v :

C:\WINDOWS\system32>C:\strawberry\perl\bin\perl.exe -v

This is perl, v5.10.1 (*) built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread

...

WX version is as follows:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>C:\strawberry\perl\bin\perl.exe  -MWx -e"printf(qq(Wx Version=($Wx::VERSION) %s unicode=(%s)\n), Wx::wxVERSION_STRING(), Wx::wxUNICODE())"
Wx Version=(0.98) wxWidgets 2.8.10 unicode=(1)

I suspect that this *might* be something related to:

Padre::Wx::Menu::Help

or to:

Padre::Pod2HTML

But that's just a guess ... :-/

  • Summary changed from In Arabic and Hebrew interface - the text in "About" is displayed mirrored (horizontally flipped) to WinXP - Arabic and Hebrew interface - the text in "About" is displayed mirrored (horizontally flipped)

Hi,
An update / clarification:
I have seen that this happens - *only* on the Windows XP PC that I have at work (on Hebrew and Arabic interface).
I use there Padre with Strawberry Perl.

This does not happen on Linux.
Tested on Ubuntu 10.10 and on ArchLinux?.
