Hi. I tried "export to EPUB" new functionality on office document in Arabic language.
Frankly speaking, I was expecting a rubbish symbols of unknown meaning .....
But, output EPUB file was beyond my imagination: Arabic contents displayed correctly BUT with only one defect: alignment & direction of sentances is to the left (from left to right).
Please notice when I said direction is from left to right I do not mean that words rearrange inversely. But, I mean that character like "!" at the end of the line will appear in EPUB at the beginning of the line.
Please compare attached files (original office & EPUB)

Hi, thanks for the bug report!
Confirmed using LO 6.1 master build (bc6f3c0fe95f9162fb14dc540fa2b4bc81af32bf) / Windows 7.
Hi. I test bug on version 184.108.40.206 LO as AppImage. It is still existing without any improvement.
Confirmed in Versión: 220.127.116.11.alpha1 (x64)

Looks like it is related with the styles/language export I mentioned in bug 121449.
I'm comparing again outputs from both filters for additional information.

Style sheet from L 6.2 native epub filter

Writer2html 1.6.1 (it has it's own bugs like the style sheet not formatting properly contrary to the native epub)

I'm copying Mark and Miklos, which I understand are involved in epub filter.

Thanks for rechecking! Please also add version information from Help -> About, so the version can be known without having to look up which AppImage was current at the time.
Last available fresh standard AppImage is version 18.104.22.168
