How to have back RTL with Automatic Translations extensions

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Hi guys,
I'm running last Joomla 3.9.4 + Helix Ultimate 1.0.5 + SP Page Builder Pro 3.4.7 + SEF Translate for automatic translations
As we all know some common languages like Arabic, Hebrew, Persian are RTL languages.

Please, What is the right approach to have back an "Helix Ultimate + SP Page Builder" RTL template ?
Please, Are there any setting into Helix Ultimate / SP Page Builder ? Please, Can you point me on that ?

I mean something I have to prepare into them before to say to SEF Translate to use that settings, "to point to", if the RTL languages are selected...

Hi,
sorry but you have to talk with ordasoft developer.
As I know RTL mode is added when a user has a browser language from this country.
So in theory, if Arabic user would browse your site and switch language he/she should have right-left.

Hi Paul,
Thanks for the answer. What I mean here is if there is a way to prepare Helix Ultimate + SP Page Builder for the RTL mode, Please, Is there ?

Into Helix Ultimate documentation you wrote about RTL Support:
"HelixUltimate supports RTL, but it takes advantage of the fact that virtually all modern browsers support it inherently. This enables you to use RTL in your site's content without any administrative toggles needing to be switched by the developer."

So, I suppose that Helix Ultimate & SP Page Builder have yet the "RTL code" inside, but it is only called from the browser...
A - Please, How to have it (RTL mode) from joomla default language by default, instead of the browser language ?
B - ....and How to then call the RTL mode by the SEF Translate when the RTL languages are selected ?!? I mean what is the RTL code (Helix Ultimate, SP Page Builder Pro) I have to call...

Yes, it support.
Most of our users just add content, and content is moved from left-right into right-left auto by the browser.
Find on our forum users who do it every day and talk with them. I use Latin languages only, so I am no expert.

extra tips:
Find standalone browser which allows you to install Arabic/Herb etc. language and as default so there RTL mode should be by default set.
or
Change setting language preferences in your browser from EN? to AR

Hi Paul,
thanks for suggestions, but I think that here I mean another thing. As far as I understand:

- Helix Ultimate & SP Page Builder support RTL by default (no settings needed)
- When the browser language is "Arabic" (for example), the RTL is applied

But, sorry, I can have an Arabic browser and surfing in an English site....

Anyway, I don't want apply the RTL when browser is in a RTL lqanguage.
For example, I'm surfing with an English browser and a switch to Arabic on my site using SEF Translate extension > I suppose I have to call with SEF Translate the RTL Helix Ultimate / SP Page Builder "code/feature)...

Am I right ? How to do it ?

Does the RTL feature move only the content words from left to right and/or also all the images/videos etc. are moved in a specular mode ?

YES
But with SPPB, of course, you can change order elements during adding content.

- When the browser language is "Arabic" (for example), the RTL is applied

YES

as I know from Isreal webmaster from his projects.

Helix Ultimate in his /css folder has an extra file rtl.css
- it changes the order of text and some elements.
As I know some webmasters always add their own custom styles to correct some issues,
but they are native RTL so they see what is needed, I am blind in that area.
--
Just find RTL webmaster and talk with him for 1h on skype etc. for extra tips.

Hi Paul,
I looked for RTL.
Support from JoomShaper team is a must. The goal should be:

1 - Be sure Helix Ultimate and SP Page Builder code are ready for RTL:
A - This is quite the only info we have: https://www.joomshaper.com/blog/helix-ultimate-1-0-2-brings-open-graph-data-rtl-support-and-more
B - This is a really useful joomla "How to RTL" forum discussion https://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?t=468750#p1963625
C - This seem to be an issue that still have to be solved and should be considered https://www.joomshaper.com/forums/helix-ultimate-missing-html-lang-attribute#reply-140885

2 - Have a detailed "How to RTL" documentation guide (Helix Ultimate + SP Page Builder):
D - How to add, prepare, edit the RTL files
E - As I know RTL mode is added when a user has a browser language from this country = The RTL mode should be applied following the "Joomla > System - Language Filter plugin > Language Selection for new Visitors: Site Language / Browser Settings" setting
F - How to call the (Helix Ultimate + SP Page Builder) RTL code mode when Joomla module Language Switcher and/or an Automatic Language Translater module (like SEF Translate) select a RTL language
