in the GUI, you'll see the contents of each window displayed either all
RTL or all LTR depending on the setting of the window-local 'rightleft'
setting. This means that in mixed text you'll either see Latin script
the right way and Hebrew script reversed, or the opposite -- your
choice, and you can even have two windows with opposite directionality
on a single file. I thought you knew all this.
If you are using Console Vim in a true-bidi terminal, you should ":set
norightleft termbidi" to tell Vim that the terminal is in charge of
bidirectionality. Or at least when editing Arabic; I'm not sure how this
option applies to Hebrew. I'm also not sure how the display of the text
cursor is affected by this option.
