Description Boruch Baum 2014-12-15 17:19:12 UTC
In Libre-Office Writer, when inserting a cross-reference to an endnote, a pop-up window appears which includes a selection list of the current endnotes. When the entire document and its endnotes are in an RTL language (ie. Hebrew), the elements of the list appear in the window, justified flush-left. They should be justified flush-right.

I am adding explicit instructions for reproducing the bug.
* Insert / Cross Reference / Endnotes / Page (actually any selection will do)
* See the reported screenshot (selections are left-justified even though they are Hebrew strings).

Actually, I see the same behavior also when doing the following:
* Insert / Cross Reference / Headings / Page (actually any selection will do)
* See that selections are left-justified in the Selection pane even though they are Hebrew strings.

The above was seen in:

4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
