How can I align text to the right?

I managed to align Hebrew text to the right in a page, but could not do so in a child page (both How-to and Blank).

In child pages, the alignment tool in the tool bar is not enabled, and changing the writing direction by right-clicking the text is impossible:

Hello Yael,

Welcome to Atlassian Community! It's nice to meet you.

The right-align feature you found is to right-align text to the side of the page, but it won't change the writing direction, as you've discovered.

I'm aware of the following feature request to include RTL functionality in Confluence Cloud:

  • CONFCLOUD-1373 Support RTL languages (e.g. Hebrew, Arabic, Persian) for editing and searching

In the meantime, you may be able to find a browser add-on that allows you to force RTL text; I've seen a few that exist for Chrome and Firefox for example, but I haven't tested them personally.

You can place a vote on the feature request, as this will help show the development team how in-demand this feature is. 

Thank you, and take care.


Thank you Shannon!

You're welcome, Yael.

Have a pleasant rest of your week.


Hey @Shannon Spaniol 


Would you plz tell me if there is any RTL fix for Jira cloud? 

I'm really struggling to find the right issue since there are so many... 


Thanks :) 

Hello @Israel Sali Kadosh,

Thank you for your reply! RTL languages are also not available on Jira cloud, unfortunately. I found on the Confluence ticket above a version linked for Jira. I'll share that below:

I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions about it!

Take care,

Hey @Shannon Spaniol 

Thanks for getting back to me on that issue.

Unfortunately, I've already visited  JRACLOUD-15355  and I didn't found any helpful tips to how I can switch LTR on the clouded Jira softwear.

BTW typing here and combining CTRL+SHIFT does the trick like it should..
