Thank you for your replies,

I didn't have time to test all your advices, but concerning notepad2 I can
say that it doesn't allow the Arabic script to be edited correctly, as you
cannot move within the text with the cursor properly. If you try to select
text, it mixes it up from the other side.

Windows Notepad works fine.

Dear Chris,

Thanks for the note.

Notepad2 -> Menu Bar -> File -> Encoding -> UTF-8

Instead of typing RTL texts directly into Notepad2, I type the texts in
Windows Notepad and then copy-paste it to Notepad2.
