In the tool controls bar for the text tool (at the top), there's a button (or a dropdown, depending on your screewidth), where you can change the text direction.

Yes. I understood.

Please look at the top of your window, in the row where the font and font size are displayed. At the far right, change the text direction. You may need to click on a small triangle to show the option.
