You can change the direction by editing the template files in the module folders. But there must be a way to do that without changing the main source codes.

On the other hand, there is an Direction parameter in the language setting. I changed that but the direction was the same. If it's urgent and you don't need the English language, you edit those template files directly.

If you cannot do that, you may ask a web designer to do it for you.

hello, you can edit the template file directly to make it from right to left from:

OpenERP 7: addons/web/controllers/main.py on line 543 edit it to :

<html style="height: 100%%"; direction: rtl>

it'll permanently change the direction to be from right to left... I don't know if there is a best (clean) way to do it ....

I hope this could help you...
