@moewe Thanks. I've updated the answer.

comment RTL with tabluar
@scottkosty bidi uses \beginL etc. internally, but they are not user level commands in general. bidi does provide different user level commands and environments for embedding RTL text within LTR and vice versa. I know nothing about RTL languages and babel so I can't help you with your second question.

comment Any LaTeX editor recommendations to use with Moodle?
Moodle doesn't actually use LaTeX, but MathJax. While mathjax uses LaTeX syntax, it uses Javascript and HTML's DOM model rather than TeX technology, making it mostly off topic for this site. You might try instead searching among the questions tagged with mathjax on Stack Overflow, or in the official mathjax-users Google group.

comment RTL with tabluar
@scottkosty Yes, that's a good way of thinking about it. (Substituting 'column' for 'row', which I assume is what you meant.)

comment RTL with tabluar
@scottkosty yes that's what I meant. The bidi package sets tables RTL in RTL mode and the same table LTR in LTR mode.

comment RTL with tabluar
@scottkosty I don't know about LyX but in the code above the first column at the left will be the first column on the right when typeset in RTL mode.

comment RTL with tabluar
From my understanding, the table itself is not entered RTL in the source, but LTR and then will automatically be made RTL by bidi. (Also the \beginL and \endL code isn't necessary, nor are the global language options, (and a few other things) but I assume you can't change this since it's generated by LyX.

comment Rule of thumb for synchronizing/updating Tex distributions
@kando Unpaid volunteers usually work to the schedule that adapts to their time and the task at hand. Also, some years may have more extensive changes which take longer to test and implement. Remember TeX Live supports many platforms, and even for the major OSs there are various versions most of which need to be tested. It's a major undertaking every year. Typically though mid summer is roughly when the new year appears.

comment Rule of thumb for synchronizing/updating Tex distributions
Are you talking about commercial use or personal use? Commercial users are much more conservative about updating their software generally. For personal use, you can either take @ChristianHupfer 's approach or you can use the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach, and use an older distribution until you need some new package or functionality or you encounter a bug that is fixed in a more recent distribution. Most of us are probably somewhere in between those two extremes though.

Great answer, Jason! I was about to add one, but you've covered all the bases.

comment Connecting line does not show up when using nodes in PSTricks
Can you add \listfiles before the \documentclass line in your document and recompile it. Then copy the File List that shows up in the log and edit your question to show that list.

TeXMaker is an editor, not the actual TeX system. What OS are you using?

This works for me using TL 2014. What TeX distribution are you using?

@ClintEastwood I've managed to solve the Arabic problem too, and added and answer.

comment local application of \addfontfeature and WordSpace=x
@ClintEastwood Is the Arabic portion of this question important? I have a different solution but it doesn't seem to work with the Arabic text, but I'm not sure why.

comment Trying to achieve the Word equivalent of “style for following paragraph”
Welcome to TeX.sx (although you've been registered for a while). It's really nice to have your expertise on the site for LyX questions in particular, because due to the small number of LyX users here LyX questions often don't get the kinds of answers they deserve.

comment Making a certain tree style the default for forest
@SašoŽivanović Has this feature been added yet?

comment Trying to achieve the Word equivalent of “style for following paragraph”
No, I wasn't accusing you of such. :) But if it's not possible to do something, that doesn't make it a feature request. Surely an answer of "No it's not possible to do this because..." is a good answer. We have plenty similar answers on the site for other such questions. (e.g. editor features that people ask about.)

comment Trying to achieve the Word equivalent of “style for following paragraph”
@mico How do we know this is a request for a new feature? Do we know for sure it's not possible to make LyX add an arbitrarily named item to a list environment? (Just worried that this has been closed more due to LyX aversion than to the facts.)
