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.
