Description William Friedman 2016-09-07 15:47:59 UTC
In this latest version of LO, the "visual" cursor control option is broken; it functions identically to the "logical" option, that is, in right-to-left text (in my case, Hebrew), the left arrow moves backwards in the text (i.e., to the right) and the right arrow moves forwards (i.e., to the left). I prefer the "visual" option, whereby the left arrow moves left and the right arrow moves right, and in the previous version I was using (, I think), it worked correctly. Please restore this functionality. Thank you. (If you cannot reproduce the bug, I can attempt to provide a video demonstrating the problem.)

The relevant setting, by the way, is under: Tools | Options | Language Settings | Complex Text Layout | Cursor Control | Movement.

Probably the same problem as in Bug 101361, should be fixed for 5.2.2
