Can’t find : bidi-display-reodering
What did you expect to happen?
Find it, and use it to write from right to left.
Steps to reproduce
- Create new buffer
- M-x => set-input-method => arabic
- Start writing (writes in the correct language but ordered wrongly)
- Try to fix it using bidi-display-reodering but it doesn’t show up.

I’m not sure why
bidi-display-reordering isn’t showing up for you, but if you want to write in an RTL language you should enable the
:input bidi module (make sure to read the README as well)
Also, when asking support questions please post your system information instead of leaving it blank, and try to avoid vague language like “it doesn’t show up”, since I’m not really sure what that means in this context.
Thanks for your reply. Sorry for not posting the whole information (see below). As per your recommended solution, I entered
:input bidi as I normally enter a command in vim since I’m using evil-mode, and there is no such command. I’m not sure if that what you meant with your answer since I’m very new to emacs. If you can elaborate more I’d be grateful.

I meant the
:input bidi doom module. I would suggest reading the getting started guide and faq, they explain a lot of the things you need to know to use doom emacs. But in the mean time, can enable the module by editing
.doom.d/init.el and uncommenting
; bidi under the
:input category, and then running
doom sync to update the changes from your personal config. the module readme explains how to set up the module, but you probably need to go over the starter guide to learn how to configure doom, but if you just want to make sure it works, you can run
M-x +bidi-global-mode and check that the text aligns correctly
Thanks, your solution worked flawlessly .
