In this screenshot, right justification was selected, yet the preview shows left justification.

I can't reproduce it in

Comment 3 Xisco Faulí 2017-11-14 12:28:41 UTC
In your screenshot, justification is set to right, it should be set to left...
Comment 4 Omer Zak 2017-11-14 12:55:05 UTC
When I set justification to left, the preview shows right justification.
I did not add a screenshot for this case as well.

By the way, this bug is similar to https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=107567 (which reports wrong preview in the Indents & Spacing tab).

Yes i can repo it with arabic UI, but this will likely be resolved when bug 107567 is fixed.

I'm not seeing this bug with:

Based on the last comment, marking as fixed - but feel very free to reopen if you still set it with v6.1.1.2 or later.
