I am trying to generate slides in Urdu language in LibreOffice Impress. Urdu is written from right to left. If I want to generate a bullet point, it always appears on the left side. The correct way for the bullet point to appear is on the right side. For details, please see the screenshot at https://ibb.co/cgteed.
Another related issue is that LibreOffice guesses the written language incorrectly (please see the screenshot above), the actual language in which the text is written is 'Urdu' but LibreOffice thinks the language is 'Hindi'.
Though, the bug appears in impress but I guess the behavior will be similar in 'writer' as well.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a language that is written from right to left e.g. Urdu
2. Select a bullet point style
3. Start writing text, the bullet point starts moving towards left side, though it should stay on the right side.
The bullet point is displayed on the left side in a language written from right to left
The bullet point should be on the right side rather than on the left in a language written from right to left

For now you can use View - Toolbars - Text formatting and set it to RTL manually
Judging by your screenshot, and the fact that I can't reproduce this, I speculate that you've chosen right-alignment but still have Left-to-Right direction. That's not incompatible with the screenshot and assuming that's the case, this is not a bug but intended behavior. If you want the _paragraph_, rather than some run of text within the paragraph, to be RTL - and thus get its bullet placed on the right - set the paragraph direction.
If I'm mistaken, please reopen and clarify what your alignment and direction settings were - page, page element (content box) and specific paragraph.
Yes, you are right.Following the suggestion solves the problem. Thanks.
