Right-to-Left Alignment Support for Arabic Content

I hope you are doing well.

I would like to express my gratitude for the exceptional work your team has put into Softr. It has significantly improved the way we handle tasks and has become an indispensable tool for our workflows.

I am reaching out with a feature request that I believe could greatly enhance the usability of Softr for users like me who work with right-to-left languages such as Arabic. The requested feature involves the ability to align components, such as titles, subtitles, and call-to-action buttons, to the right or left within the hero section, or other relevant sections.

As a user from an Arabic-speaking country, the current limitation of left-to-right alignment for Arabic content affects our ability to create aesthetically pleasing and culturally appropriate designs. The alignment of content plays a crucial role in effective communication, and having the ability to align elements according to the right-to-left flow of Arabic would be immensely beneficial.

Presently, when we incorporate Arabic text, it appears left-aligned, which can be a deterrent when trying to engage users who expect the familiar right-to-left orientation. This feature would not only enhance the visual appeal of our designs but also hold the potential to impact business outcomes, as content alignment significantly influences user perception.

I understand that your team may be juggling numerous feature requests and technical considerations, but I wanted to share my perspective on the significance of this feature for users in regions where right-to-left languages are predominant. If there are any upcoming plans to integrate this feature, it would be a tremendous step forward for inclusivity and user experience.

I hope this feature is included in the in progress feature (Improved block design) but If not and by any chance, there is already a workaround or solution for achieving right-to-left alignment within Softr, I would greatly appreciate your guidance in this matter.

Thank you for your attention to user feedback and your commitment to continually improving Softr. I am looking forward to the possibility of seeing right-to-left alignment support for Arabic content in the near future. Your consideration of this request is greatly appreciated.

Hello @Glyness

Thank you very much for reaching out to us and for your kind words. We’re thrilled to hear that the platform has had such a positive impact on your workflows and tasks.

We truly appreciate your thoughtful feature request to add support for right-to-left (RTL) alignment for languages like Arabic. Your perspective on the importance of this feature for users who work with right-to-left languages is extremely valuable to us. We understand how critical proper alignment is for creating aesthetically pleasing and culturally appropriate designs, and we fully acknowledge the impact it can have on user engagement and perception.

While the feature you’ve described is not yet part of the currently in-progress “Improved Block Design,” I want to assure you that RTL alignment is indeed on our roadmap. We recognize the significance of this enhancement, and we’re actively working towards integrating this feature to ensure a more inclusive and user-friendly experience for all our users.

At this time, we don’t have a workaround or solution for achieving RTL alignment within Softr.

Thank you once again for your feedback, your support, and your commitment to improving Softr. We’re excited about the prospect of offering right-to-left alignment support for Arabic content in the near future, and we’ll make sure to keep you updated on our progress.

If you have any further questions or if there’s anything else we can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Your input is invaluable to us as we continue to refine and enhance the Softr platform.

Warm regards,
Softr Team
