Summary0017010: Cursor handling / text editing works incorrectly for Right-to-left languages
DescriptionWhen editing text containing right-to-left languages such as Hebrew, MediaMonkey moves the cursor incorrectly; pressing the back-arrow on a Hebrew string causes the cursor to back up until the position _after_ (to the left of) the first letter at which point it jumps to the leftmost position of the string [it should cause the cursor to back up to the position _before_ (to the right of) the first letter--it shouldn't jump]. Similarly, pressing the right-arrow on a hebrew string causes the cursor to move leftwards towards the end of the string until one position _before_ (to the right of) the last character upon which it umps to the first character in the string [it should continue moving to the left of the last character after which it should jump to the right of the first hebrew character].

This can best be seen via a video:

Resolving. It seems that this is the behavior in Chrome, so presumably users of right to left languages are used to this behavior.
