Hi. I do not know what I should in title to discribe this bug !

I'm on Fedora 28 X64 Cinnamon edition. Today I take a radical decision to remove system LO & install flatpak LO to enjoy last edition.

Flatpak package working good. But I confronted when started to use impress ! Please look for attached power point (this is only one example). On system LO that I removed there was no such issue that I will discuss !

On flatpak package when I open power point file it will open normally with it's correct direction (in this example from Left to Right). But just when I set pointer of mouse on content of slide (any slide) then direction will reversed into Right to Left ! Moreover, if I tried to correct direction by edit it back to Left to Right it will reverted again to Right to Left !!

Please your kind attention !

Can you install LibreOffice from rpm packages from TDF site and try retest your problem?

Hi. You failed to reproduce this bug because your UI in English or other Latin language, correct?

I got this bug when using Arabic UI. But after reading your response, I changed my UI to English & bug disappeared. But when I reset UI on Arabic, the bug re-appearing again.

Please examine the case after change UI into Arabic.

You can't set up status to NEW, anybody else from QA team should make it
Comment 4 Xisco Faulí 2019-07-09 14:27:06 UTC
So this issue is only happening with Flatpak packages?
What happens if you install LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh ?

Hi. It is not limited to flatpak issue. It is also, occurring on AppImage formate version I did not examine .rpm from source & I will never examine it because I do not like to give root privilege for external package .......

However, my system LibreOffice that installed from my official Fedora repositories has no such issue.

Note: I noticed that if layout of slide involving title field, like slide no. 1 in attached document, then when you click on title field contents then the direction set (changed) to correct one. But if you click over contents of field bellow (field of body of slide) then issue happening !

Hi. I'm started now to suffer this issue with my SYSTEM L.O !

I tried to create new PPT. file for my new lucture & suffered from it !

I attached my new lucture with 2 screenshots (1st before applying mouse left click over contents when contents direction is correct & 2nd after applying mouse left click over contents of slides when issue generated)

I forgot in my previous comment, (comment 8), to mention that I'm, now, on Fedora 30 X64 Cinnamon edition & my system LO (.rpm package) is: fc30.1-
Comment 13 Buovjaga 2019-10-14 19:56:00 UTC
What do we need to reproduce this?
1. Arabic locale
2. Arabic UI
3. Arabic locale + UI

Please reply after testing with American English locale and UI and combining with Arabic.
Comment 14 yousifjkadom 2019-10-15 17:13:41 UTC

I tried what you asked me to do.

This bug only happening with Arabic UI while Arabic locale has no effect at all.

Ok, this is Linux-only: I repro with Arabic UI, gtk3 and kf5
