RTL languages

I'm going to start this with an Arabic phrase as it appears on a Mac in TextEdit (RTF):

Here is my test stack.

The text is Left-Aligned. I suspect that is because the default text-alignment of a field is set to Left.

However; the original Arabic text in the RTF file was incorrectly aligned
(when I pasted it there from Google translate).

Pasting properly aligned Arabic text . . .

Certainly, with my stack, where the field was a bog-basic, left-aligned setup, the text-alignment
after pasting seems to have "travelled" along with the pasted text.
