PDF file with "Text Box" entries

I use Debian 8 (Jessie) AMD64 version

With LibreOffice Version:

I want to make a pdf file which can be fillable in some boxes, as a format for students or any other purpose.

When I fill the boxes in English, there's no issue with it, but when I use Arabic entries in boxes, they don't appear/show in the page unless I use click double click on the box.

The real bug is your pdf viewer maybe Evince or other software. I was able to create text filed in Arabic and reopen it.

It's maybe related to this report on Evince https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/evince/+bug/1288182

Please confirm that you are seeing this problem in Evince and not in Libreoffice itself
