In writer, even thou the GUI and the writing lang is RTL, when previewing before printing, the furst page is in the left of the second page, which is uncorrect for RTL lang.
steps for reducing:
creat a document with 2 or more pages
no matter what, the first page is in the left of the second page.
Confirmed. This is regardless of the file/page directionality (LTR/RTL) or the interface itself.
