I accidentally changed my answer to type right-to-left via some hotkey:

How can I undo it, without refreshing the page?

  • I don't think this is an SE thing, probably an OS thing. What is your OS?

  • Try to press ctrl + left arrow + shift to set it back to left to right text.

  • @MarkKirby If ctrl + right arrow + shift is to make it right-to-left, then it isn't working, and I already refreshed the page where it was right-to-left Nov 22 '20 at 15:00
  • OK then what browser do you have?

    @MarkKirby That was the right question; Ctrl + Shift + X on Firefox, Windows 10. You can post it as answer I'll accept - thanks. Nov 22 '20 at 15:05

    You're lucky. Try to fix whole screen being upside-down after mis-clicking a key. :D Nov 22 '20 at 15:46

This is not a feature of Stack Exchange, but of your browser. Pressing

Ctrl + Shift +X will reverse text direction in Firefox.

Right Ctrl + left Shift or right Shift will reverse text direction in Chromium-based browsers.

    Actually, any Ctrl key would work; not just the one at the right. The Shift key is what affects the direction. Moreover, the Ctrl+Shift combination works for me on Firefox too. AFAIK, this is the default on Windows. I never encountered a program that supports switching directions where this combination didn't work.
