Fill In The Blank Bug

There is a bug with the fill in the blank multiple choice questions. The blank is appearing at the far right right of the sentence like this:

אני אוכל אפרסק___

[Multiple choice is located below to attach the adjective after the word Apharsek, like טעים]

It should look like:

__אני אוכל אפרסק

Because the adjective goes in this position.

This started at least 3 weeks ago because that is the first comment I could find that talks about this. I am reporting it and wondering what can be done about this.

I have a screenshot but am not sure how to post it, but its pretty straightforward and I don't think its really needed.

***EDIT: It is even buggier because when I typed it in the text box to format how it looks wrong in the exercises, the blank switched sides after posting. In other words, how it appears after I type it is the opposite of before. Right to left language can have this kind of buggy formatting some time when in spaces close to english.

This sounds like a problem with the recent change to the lesson design. As Hebrew is the only right-to-left language on Duolingo, it's possible that it didn't occur to the designers to ensure the blank follows the direction of writing. I suggest that you report it directly as a bug, as staff might not frequent this forum.

Thanks. That is helpful. I have submitted the report.

Thanks Enzo. We will use UserVoice to raise this issue. As garpike mentioned, it is probably concerning all RTL languages.

Happy to help. I am surprised it wasn't reported until now.

The question marks or exclamation marks are sometimes on the wrong side too.

This is insane. It's a year later since you posted and it's still not fixed. I didn't start getting the fill in the blanks until a few weeks ago, but a third of the sentences are now fill in the blanks - in reversed word order and aligned from the right.

Actually, I just realised it's worse than it was a year ago. It now looks like this: A file has been shared using Samsung Link Sharing. https://s.amsu.ng/oTKzYzJHpoUN (Expires: Sep 17, 2019)
