    I found something very strange.

    Apple has now officially added Right to Left languages support for Numbers.
    That means, you can now change the direction of the text inside numbers, like you could in Pages or Keynote.

    In Numbers, The tables have a direction too, and Apple's Help menu says you can reverse a table direction and even gives you the necessary steps to reverse a table.

    The problem is, the help menu refers to buttons or menus that do not exist! For example, in order to reverse a table direction, you need to select any cell from the table, then do the following: Choose "Format" -> "Table" -> "Reverse Table Direction", but, there is no "Table" inside "Format".

    Did they forget to update this part of the program..........?
    This is very confusing....

    I don't have the option either in the menu or in the sidebar here either.

    Yep, they're in the help documentation, but the options aren't in the app itself.

    You're not going crazy!
