Hebrew in PDF

This happens in Windows and Linux alike.
Using LibreOffcie 4.4.0.3

Attached is an example PDF, we have tested multiple files with multiple fonts.
Comment 1 A (Andy) 2015-02-22 10:21:50 UTC
Reproducible with LO 4.4.0.3, Win 8.1.
Comment 2 Erez Hadad 2015-08-30 13:39:57 UTC
Reproducible on Ubuntu 14.04, LibreOffice 5.0.1.2
Comment 3 Eyal Rozenberg 2016-03-15 21:11:55 UTC
Indeed, this seems to always be the behavior - both with PDFs created by LibreOffice (Export to PDF) and PDFs created elsewhere. If you want another PDF (not created in LO) with Hebrew, try this:

Reproduced with 5.0.5.2 release.

Non-LO-generated PDF with Hebrew text

The link to a document in my previous comment is dead, so instead here's an attachment with a PDF file not created with LO (originally it's InDesign CS4 and Adobe Distiller 10). Opening it in LO Draw results in the same issue.

PDF with Arabic text triggering the bug

It seems this happens with Arabic text as well, so it's an RTL language issue rather than Hebrew issue specifically.
