Description Ofir 2016-11-09 06:22:19 UTC
The attached PPTX has a textbox. It should show
אאא בבב
Impress switch the order and show
בבב אאא

slide1.xml has two separate elements for אאא and בבב. This probably confuses Impress.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached PPTX in Impress

Actual Results:  
אאא בבב

Expected Results:
בבב אאא

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes
