Hi girls and guys,

Currently our text handling in UI is very basic, it works well for basic 
languages like “european” ones, but not for complex ones (arabic and 
other RTL, Indic familly, etc.). As we support more and more real i18n, 
it becomes very annoying for users willing to translate or type in there 
native language (chars are not drawn in the good order, cursor 
navigation and text selection is wrong, etc.).

So I took some hours in the past two days to setup a first draft of a 
proposition to get a real text engine inside Blender, available here: 
http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/User:Mont29/Text_Engine_Reflections .

Feedback is obviously most welcomed! :D

Kind regards,
