Hello,

Hebrew subtitles displays punctuation marks in the wrong direction, sometimes breaking the sentence structure. This is probably caused since Hebrew is RTL (right-to-left) language.

Pictures and .srt file can be found on this the bug report from the old forum:

The answer I got back then was:

This is an issue of Android text drawing system.

So please note that XBMC for Android displays Hebrew subtitles properly. Perhaps you can take a look at how it's done on XBMC, and fix it also for MX player.

I realy like MX better than any other player, and I wish that this problem will be fixed soon.

Thank you very much in advance!
