Many PDFs containing Hebrew text are such that, if you open them in a PDF viewer, the Hebrew text is displayed with proper directions and orders of glyphs; and selecting text from the PDF produces raw text in the clipboard in the correct order, i.e. it's not just some tromp-l'oeil for display purposes - and yet, if you open that same PDF in LO Draw - the order of the Hebrew glyphs gets reversed.
In fact, this happens even with PDFs created by LibreOffice itself (e.g. exported from LO Writer)!
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open LO writer
2. Set the direction to RTL and the language to Hebrew
3. Write a few words, say, אחת שתיים שלוש ארבע
4. Export a PDF (don't save as PDF)
5. Open the attached PDF file in Draw.
The text you see is: עברא שולש םייתש תחא
The text you should see is: אחת שתיים שלוש ארבע

Same thing happens with Arabic. Type: واحد اثنين ثلاثة أربعة in the ODT file.

... and the lazier still. This is what you want to open in Draw.
