Most likely you are seeing a limitation
in the usage of GDIplus, which is used by SWT's advanced graphics.

[platform-ui-dev] Workbench BIDI support
When we conduct our globalization testing for BIDI support, we usually
set the system locale to a BIDI language speaking country (e.g. Hebrew
in Israel) in "Regional and Language Options" if not on a native
platform. Starting eclipse this way doesn't seem to make the workbench
right-to-left. However, in TPTP, we have a Test Log Viewer editor
that contains a graphical pie chart. The pie chart is displayed correctly
in this case (note the legend used to be on the right hand side of the
pie in a English locale, as well as inside the legend, icons used to be
at the left side of the text pass, fail...):
However, if I use "-dir rtl" or "-nl he" with eclipse.exe,
the workbench started with all UI parts flipped including the pie chart
which is no longer readable:
Which one is the correct case with BIDI language like Hebrew? Does
eclipse.exe has to be started with -dir or -nl options on a BIDI system?
If so, should all the graphics be flipped at all?
Your help on this will be very appreciated.
