Hi Uri,

Thanks for your feedback.
I can reproduce it on our side in PB 12.6 and PB 2019 R3. 
And I've submitted this issue to our development team. 
They will determine whether they can fix it based on their analysis of the
issue and their schedule. 
We will update you if it will be fixed.

BTW, currently I don't have a suitable workaround for you but I have
commented it as a top priority in our inner system.

truncated_rtl.zip (33KB)

*Phenomenon:
Contents of text columns having the Right to Left property may not show fully. The get truncated. This is similar to bugs #5516 #5386 #5358 etc. but it concerns regular plain text, not rich text. Maybe the rich text bugs originate or are connected in some way to this basic bug.
This is a legacy bug, I've tried the same test cases on 12.5 and the same is observed.

*Reproduce Steps:
2 Test cases are attached. 
Run rtlregulartext.
Hit the Go button when the RTL checkbox is checked.
To see the result scroll down the datawindow using the mouse wheel only  w/o focusing on the datawindow.
Note the end of the "Great" text displayed - it does not end with the string "E N D !" which was assigned as the text ending.
Uncheck the RTL checkbox and it the Go button again.
Note the end of the "Great" text ends with the string "E N D !" .
The assigned text's length can be altered using the edit mask.

The printpreviewregulartext test case is similar except it displays within a report.

Remarks:
This bug affects our production programs and causes us tremendous damage. Customers leave our products because their data is in effect truncated.
We'll greatly appreciate if you treat this bug as top priority.
Thank you and regards!
