amazing notepad feature!

i've occasionally seen notepad switch from normal left-to-right text to right-to-left, and always wondered why. i've even tried all sorts of key combinations, to no avail. i finally cracked the puzzle today, thanks to a happy accident and a lot of wasted time trying combinations of keys.

to reverse the text input direction in notepad, press ctrl + rshift. to get it back to normal left-to-right, use ctrl + lshift.

btw, it even reverses the arrow keys. strange!!!

boring

doing the same thing over and over again, no matter how well you do it, is bound to get boring eventually. the real fun is in doing things...
