RTL field in Word 2019
Open attachment 182846 [details] from tdf#151364 which is a DOCX file containing fields that can be changed using the dropdown menu. For the RTL fields, the down arrows should fall on the left.
Steps to Reproduce:
1- Open DOCX attachment
2- Click on a gray field in page 1
The down arrow for dropdown content control for RTL fields are shown on the right, just like LTR fields
The down arrow should fall on the left, as it is in MS Word.
Please note that this is not per-document, and it is per-field. If you go to the last page of the same file in MS Word, you will see that for the LTR fields, the down arrow falls on the right.
