Description almalkem 2021-09-25 16:42:52 UTC
if i was using libreoffice 7.2 calc and writing arabic words inside cells, if I click enter it goes down. that is fine. but if i move by keyboard buttons right or left it doesn't work. but if language of content is english it works. in arabic content it doesn't work

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open file in libreoffice calc
2.try to write arabic word
3.you can click enter, it will go automatically to down sell. but can't move to left or right cell. but if language of content in cells were english, it will move up or down or left or right by keyboard buttons noramlly

Actual Results:
it doesn't go to right or left cell until I use mouse

they should just make it recognizable when using keyboard to go to left cell or right cell not only down cell.

This sounds like some sort of issue with keyboard layout on your system. I've never experienced something like this, and it sounds unlikely, as movement between cells should not affected by the language of the cell's contents.

Anyway, can't reproduce.

If you can reproduce this on different systems (try different Linux distributions / desktop environments, and perhaps Windows) - please reopen, although I really doubt that could be the case.
