Description Eyal Rozenberg 2018-11-21 12:50:24 UTC
When editing a comment (in an off-page balloon), it is possible to manually set its direction to LTR or RTL, using the toolbar. However, it is _not_ possible to set it using the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+LShift and Ctrl+RShift, which usually switch direction (and work when editing text on the page proper).

I'm guessing somebody just forgot to enable these somewhere.

A possibly-related issue: bug 114733.

Tested with:
Build ID: d1b41307be3f8c19fe6f1938cf056e7ff1eb1d18
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.9; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: en-US (en_IL); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

but seen at least as early as 5.6.x versions and probably much earlier still.
