    Let me start by saying it is going to be frustrating. It is what it is.

    Here are some possible workarounds (this requires lots of trial and error and can't guarantee it'll work):

    • Sperate the field into to a template with 2 cells.
    • Have "program lines" or in a preprocessing when you pass the data, that scrambles it to way when it gets scrambled by the Smartform it is displayed correctly.
    • Translate whatever is not in Arabic to Arabic, including numbers (if it creates an issue), so, for example, 12 milk cartons would be twelve milk cartons (there are FM for this, or you can use some translate API). - This requires a lot of work.
    • Limit the texts to Arabic only on the input level, given you can do this.
    • Try different Smartstyles on the text (try that with the first 2 options too in case they don't work).
    • Look for some SAP note regarding this issue.
