Description Lior Kaplan 2011-12-13 16:37:04 UTC
I'm opening this report as a meta bug for RTL related issues. Please talk with Lior Kaplan before blocking this bug with other bugs.
Comment 1 Lior Kaplan 2011-12-13 16:39:56 UTC
See also https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=114236 for past issues reported in OO.org.
Comment 2 Munzir Taha 2011-12-26 10:45:34 UTC
I just added the following bugs as dependencies:
42558: FORMATTING: Missing Arabic Abjad numberals for page numbers
42561: Changing a long paragraph direction reverses the letters
42595: FORMATTING: Some Impress/Custom Animation effects reverses the Arabic letters
43093: FILEOPEN: Arabic MS Office documents opens with wrong alignments
Comment 3 Lior Kaplan 2011-12-26 12:20:42 UTC
Thanks for reported this issues, but this meta bug isn't the place for them at the moment. Please discuss with me before adding new issues, especially on the first time.

At the moment all bugs are reported for Arabic only, and are all unconfirmed. You should get them confirm in any case. For them to be relevant as general RTL bugs you need to get them confirmed for other RTL languages. I usually try to test with Arabic or Frasi (or get help with other for those languages).

I'm dropping them from the depends box, at least till they will be confirmed by other Arabic users. At the moment I wasn't able to reproduce them with Hebrew (and left you some comments). Also, you probably meant bug 42596 instead of 42595 (which isn't related to LibO).
Comment 4 Munzir Taha 2011-12-27 07:34:36 UTC
Thanks kaplan for the clarification. I added screen shots and clarification to bug #43093. Let's discuss them one by one then. Can you reproduce now?
Comment 5 Roman Eisele 2012-09-29 08:57:47 UTC
Added bug bug 54629 - “EDITING: Hebrew/Arabic text is not clickable in textbox area of Impress slides”. Not a “most annoying” bug, but our RTL experts should be aware of it ...
Comment 6 Lionel Elie Mamane 2013-01-07 08:08:05 UTC
Nominating bug 49320: a "pure latin characters" LTR document created in a Hebrew version of MS Word still imports as RTL in LibreOffice.
Comment 7 Lionel Elie Mamane 2013-01-07 08:10:30 UTC
Nominating bug 56169: pasting (in MS Word) Hebrew text in a .doc created by LibreOffice treats the paste as Hindi instead of Hebrew
Comment 8 Nadav 2013-02-06 07:58:23 UTC
add 45999 FILESAVE: Hebrew comments/notes appear as squares in MS Word when saving in doc (work on docx)
Comment 9 Faisal Menawer 2013-03-18 04:59:03 UTC
Can we add these bugs:

Bug 37464 - Cell Border works backwards on Right-to-Left spreadsheet.
Bug 34837 - Merged Cell's borders vanishes when changing sheet direction to (Right-To-Left).
Comment 10 Maxim Monastirsky 2013-09-15 18:34:17 UTC
@Kaplan:
Hi, Can we add the following bugs:

Bug 67143 - UI Sidebar: Tabulator icon doesn't work in RTL paragraphs
Bug 69280 - UI: Comments toggle button should be on the left side of the ruler when locale set to RTL language
Bug 68808 - EDITING: Font name combobox shows wrong font for fields when paragraph is RTL

thanks.
Comment 11 safa alfulaij 2014-02-04 06:14:07 UTC
This is also a RTL bug with fields...
73933
Comment 12 Lior Kaplan 2014-05-30 05:58:34 UTC
@maxim - Bug 68808 added. Thanks.
Comment 13 Gil Shwartz 2014-06-03 11:23:55 UTC
Some more RTL bugs: 76834 and 79585
Comment 14 Gil Shwartz 2014-11-30 06:09:39 UTC
Additional BiDi/RTL bug in writer - 86867.
Comment 15 Gil Shwartz 2014-12-29 15:12:44 UTC
Bug 47314 is a long time related bug.
Comment 16 Khaled Hosny 2016-10-04 12:13:13 UTC
Renaming the issue to reflect the reality, what is most annoying or not is subjective at best. What we need is a meta bug for any RTL-related issue.
