Unicode is supported, however, right-to-left languages are not. Note the following excerpt from the Scintilla documentation:

Scintilla does not properly support right-to-left languages like Arabic and Hebrew. While text in these languages may appear correct, it is not possible to interact with this text as is normal with other editing components.

Many thanks Jacon.

I guess we have to wait for the dll to one day support right-to-left.

Are you aware of any other alternative that does away with the inefficient RichTextBox?

Thank you
