Similar to bug #103495 but for Impress. More severe as all text in Impress is in textboxes (while in writer can be done without).

Steps to Reproduce:

Copy this sentence to a textbox in impress. Notice the location of the full stop.

Hi Lior,
Could you please try to reproduce it with a master build from http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/ as well?

OTOH, is it also reproduced in version of LibreOffice 3.3 (oldest one) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/ ?

Please check with latest master build. Possibly fixed with the following commit:


tdf#60533 invoke ubidi_setPara with correct paraLevel parameter.

It will be available in 6.1.0.
