Hi Uri,

Thanks for reporting this problem and providing the test case.
I can reproduce it when the RichTextEdit control selected in the application painter is TX Text Control ActiveX (all versions) on our side in PB 12.6, PB 2017 R3 1915, PB 2019 R2 2353, and PB 2019 R3 Beta.
We have escalated this problem to our development team for further analysis. 
we will need some time to figure it out and will get back to you if any progress we would make.
BTW: Thanks for taking your time & effort to test out the PB2019R3 beta. 
Appeon really appreciates it!

Hi Uri;

  Thank you for the test case! I was able to replicate your issue on my W10 test PC's under R3 Beta. Even after changing your test App to use the TX control v28 (this will be the new standard TX control in R3 GA).

  I will now transfer this ticket over tot he main Support / Engineering Team for their review and feedback.

Regards ... Chris

Rich Text data in Hebrew in RTL layout is truncated at the right side.

*Reproduce Steps:
Run the application. In the last line where the text should read "תאריך 20.08.18" , as in file Hebrew.rtf, but you can see that the right hand side vertical line and part of the character "ת" are missing.
This bug occurs when the RichTextEdit control selected in the application painter is TX Text Control ActiveX (all versions). It does not occur with the Built-in Rich Edit Control (Obsolete), which has other problems.

1. This is the same bug as 1460. I am reporting it again per the 2109 R3 beta.
2. This bug can be reproduced with the attached example in all column width and border type options.
3. Data is stored within all the datawindows in the example. The related rtf files are provided as a reference.
4. My windows 10 version is 1909.
5. I have the English and Hebrew languages installed on my computer, Region defined as Israel and Regional format "Hebrew (Israel)".
