Description Hadi SetSH 2017-11-22 17:25:12 UTC
Hi There , I appreciate Your work and LibreOffice is so great for Englsih . But for Farsi every version has some bugs :(
There's a character in Arabic and Farsi as name " Tashdid " it represents Stress-Spelling of relative character and in LibreOffice 5.4.1 and 5.4.2 , Writer doesn't allow to be typed-and-rest , after resuming typing the word and other words it will lost ( In regular Windows Fonts ) and I use Roya font and I insist to type Tashdid and whole word will distort . All of us in Persian language countries will be grateful to You , Just wish Farsi work charm like English . Thanks a lot

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Alter Your Language to Farsi
2. Start typing and over one of the middle character press Shift and F
3. It should insert Tashdid ّ
4. But doesn't , I have a odt document that has one tashdid and Writer distort it when shows document

Actual Results:  
It doesn't input Tashdid and documents whcih have it will shown distorted

Expected Results:
Insert and show the Tashdid character and be compatible with it

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

In recent version Tashdid bug still exist but in other form , As You can see tashdid on Kaffashi can't seen while I typed it
Also there is another bug vowels can't be typed :
ٌ ٍ ً ْ ُ ِ َ

These are vowels in Persian ( and Arabic too )

Will be glad if You fix them

Not clear. Screenshot and attached example file are different. I set back to Needinfo.

Please use http://tdf.io/siguiexe to run (without installing):
- LO 5.3.4 you say it was working fine
- LO 5.4.1 you say it was wrong
- LO 6.1.0 that is current fresh version
- LO 6.2+ master that is newest development version.

With all 4 running, make and mark screenshot so that we can see difference in a single sentence.
