i open text file with Farsi content on it, with utf8 encode
i search for this:همیشه
but program unable to find it
please fix this
Apple's TextEdit app also does not find a match.
The search string "همیشه" is similar to some words "هميشه" in the file but differs in the middle character which is 'ی' U+06CC ARABIC LETTER FARSI YEH, not 'ي' U+064A ARABIC LETTER YEH, In UTF-8, this is "\xd9\x87\xd9\x85\xdb\x8c\xd8\xb4\xd9\x87" instead of "\xd9\x87\xd9\x85\xd9\x8a\xd8\xb4\xd9\x87" so Scintilla does not match.
also i forgot to say that
in above sample i search for:معبدت
but i see in preview half of this word selected
and half of another word
Scintilla does not properly support right-to-left languages like Arabic.
please add support for right to left
anyway thank you very much
