Description yousifjkadom 2018-03-09 15:31:22 UTC

LibreOffice Draw act as very good PDF editor for text-based PDF with Latin contents like English !

However, such great ability is COMPLETELY absent for Arabic Language ! When open Arabic PDF by PDF draw, the Arabic characters will appear separated by gaps & as if inverted by mirror ... 

Please open attached PDF in any PDF viewer like Okular or Adobe reader. Then open it in LibreOffice Draw & compare both to see what I mean.

Please notice that this PDF sample is created by LibreOffice itself.

Many thanks for your very hard efforts !

I forgot to mention - though it was about 2 years since last time used Windows OS - in my last use for Windows this bug was existing on Windows 7 also.
