Reverse Text reverses the order of text in each selected Text, Lyric, or System Text object. It will not reverse the orderof a sequence of objects, but just the text within single objects. If you want objects in the system staff (like Title Text) reversed, create a system (double blue box) selection.

One use for this might be to reverse Hebrew or Arabic text.

This plug-in does not handle multi-line text well; it is best to split such items into separate text objects for each line. (Multi-line items will reverse, but the line separator will be lost).

Updated 22 April 2018. Now handles line feeds, and adds several new options for reversing letters, words, or lines.
