Along with iOS 12, there was a bunch of updates released on MacOS today, including new versions of Pages/Numbers/Keynote.
 
I just opened up a Pages document with a mixture of Hebrew and English in it, and I've noticed that the button to change the text direction has disappeared! It used to be in the 'Alignment' section of the text formatting 'pane'.
 
This is very frustrating, and a bit strange since 7.1 specifically said it had 'Improved support for Arabic and Hebrew.'.
 

 

Does anyone know where the text direction switch has gone to?

Thanks, Michael...I've got it working now, and I'm not sure if that menu item was disabled previously.

 

Either way, I've got the button back now.
 
I'm not sure which of these fixed the problem but I 
  • removed the Hebrew - QWERTY keyboard from my list of keyboards, and then added it again
  • told Bartender to 'Always Show' the Text Input menu bar app.
 

 

Thanks again for the suggestions and help.
