How to change default text settings in Adobe InDesign?


This problem appeared immediately after installation: InDesign interface is in English, but text settings (RTL, right alignment of new frames, default language of text frame, and therefore arabic numbers etc.) are for Arabic and reset to it after each new document initialization?

Is there any way I change this?

I tried to change all the apparent language settings in Preferences and it did nothing.

With no documents open, change the default paragraph style and language to your preference, then close InDesign. When you next open it, those settings will be the defaults. (If you make these changes while a document is open, those will be the settings for that document only. In order to make them global and permanent, you have to change the settings with no documents active.)
