In LO Writer, like in MS Office, pressing Ctrl+LShift sets the paragraph direction to LTR, and pressiong Ctrl+RShift sets it to RTL.
This should also be the case in LO Impress, but it isn't.
(This bug is probably very old, possibly as old as Impress itself, but I haven't tried it with earlier versions yet.)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Be in editing mode of an Impress object's text box.
2. Set the direction to RTL and the alignment to justified.
3. Enter a single character (say "a")
2. Press Ctrl + Left-Shift
3. Press Ctrl + Right-Shift
After step (3.), the text should switch to the left side of the box, then switch to the right with step (4.) - along with the direction indicator.
No switches in direction.
User Profile Reset: No
This is indeed the case. I hope there's a dupe for this bug, otherwise it's a bit embarrassing that it's only being reported now...

Do you reproduce it with older versions of LibreOffice?

Thanks, Anyway, let's put it back to UNCONFIRMED until a third person confirms it...
I confirm that pressing Ctrl+Shift seems to do nothing whatsoever in Impress, whether it be the left or right pair, and whether the direction is RTL or LTR to start with.

Dear Eyal Rozenberg,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
