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!!!
