Arabic and Hebrew on Roku apps

This has been discussed in the past but quite a while ago, for example:
viewtopic.php?f=34&t=44803&p=304139&hilit=arabic#p304139
viewtopic.php?f=34&t=50706&p=344130&hilit=arabic#p344130

The question is - can an app using standard templates (e.g. roGridScreen) register a font with Hebrew or Arabic characters and have the right characters shown on the standard views?

Thanks,
Amnon

No, you will have to use either roScreen or roImageCanvas to use Hebrew or Arabic characters.
