In a few languages, for example, Arabic and Hebrew, require a right-to-left perusing heading. The for a DirectWrite text format object, the default reading direction is left-to-right. DirectWrite does not consequently construe the perusing bearing from the region, so you should do this without anyone else's help. But if you need instant help regarding Microsoft Office 365 Support then visit here
