RTL support for text

Carbide Create does not support RTL on a Mac well.
The Mac OS handles the string translation well when seen at the Text entry form when inserting text. However the renders text on the canvas is not transformed RTL.
It seems the software does not use the standard libraries for supporting RTL languages. I tried to use Hebrew, but I assume the problem exists for Arabic as well.

As noted in the other post:

Carbide Create isn’t properly internationalized.

The work-around here is to set the text in an application which does support RTL, then (after saving a copy which preserves the text-as-text) converting the type to geometry (in Inkscape this would be Path | Object to Path). The geometry then may be imported into Carbide Create as an SVG or DXF file.
