Gutenberg typing issues in RTL since 5.2

Reported by: salar6990 Owned by: iseulde
Milestone: 5.2.1 Priority: high
Severity: critical Version: 5.2
Component: Editor Keywords: has-screenshots
Focuses: rtl, administration Cc:
PR Number:


When Site has an RTL Locale (like Persian/فارسی in my case) Arrow right, arrow left and backspace keys show invalid behavior in Gutenberg editor:
arrow right and arror left move the text cursor in the opposite direction
and when the text cursor is at the end of sentence, backspace key would move the cursor to previous block or loose the focus from the current block and even could move the text to that block!

Also, in text block, if we move arrow to right at the start line of text, arrow goes left and right and remain in a loop!

Please check the video.
