Thanks for filing. This is a known issue for PDF import filter handling of text runs of RTL scripts. ICU Unicode testing for BiDi is already in use and scripts are recognized as RTL, issue is the handling of the text runs and assembling them back into lexically correct RTL--as is they are laid down as parsed from the PDF.
