For Scripture quotations I can cut and paste from my Bible program. For
single words or short phrases in articles, I can manually enter Hebrew
text, but have to press the backspace key after each letter. To set the
text to "Right justified" also helps, as it places the cursor to the right
hand end of every new line.

*WimpWriteDir 1  from the Command Line sets everything to right-to-left mode.
To return to left-to-right, I have to enter 0 riDetirWpmiW*  8-)

There are two things you need to do.

1.  Format your paragraph setting to right justified.
2. Set your language under Tools > language to Hebrew.
