Reverse Text

Hi
I am using version 1.5.6.1 (Manjaro Linux) and trying to open an old SLA file that I created some years ago with an old version of Scribus (maybe 1.4 but I cannot remember).
The Hebrew text is reversed (mirrored) and I cannot find the flipped 'R' option  button in order to correct this.
Any idea where this button disappeared to?
Thanks

RobSay:
Not sure it's exactly what you want - but you can mirror the text frame horizontally ..

Select the Frame and go to Properties.  Just below the frame geometry is the basepoint selector ... and below that is a row of buttons. The first one is 'Group the Selected Objects' (which will be disabled) and the second is "Flip horizontally" which mirrors the whole frame (Icon is a double headed horizontal arrow).

Thanks Robsay and Utnik for your answers.

In fact the solution of Robsay works fine, but Utnik - the button you pointed out just affects alignment and not reversing.

Nermander:
If those two buttons on the right are for alignment, what are the 5 buttons to the left for?
