            Bug ID: 107284
           Summary: RTL paragraphs spontaneously become LTR
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: 5.2.6.2 release
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Writer
          Assignee: libreoffice-bugs@lists.freedesktop.org
          Reporter: n...@math.technion.ac.il

This is a recent regression - I've been using OpenOffice and LibreOffice for
years and writing RTL documents a lot (in Hebrew) and haven't seen this bug
until a few weeks ago.

What I'm seeing is that in a mostly RTL document, with most (if not all) of its
paragraphs having right-to-left directionality, when I edit the document and
pass over paragraphs, "suddenly" a certain existing paragraph changes direction
and becomes LTR (and all the consequences this entails, like its last line
being aligned to the wrong end, etc.). I can easily fix this by changing the
paragraph's direction to RTL again - but later I will have the same problem on
another paragraph, and it's very annoying.

I am not exactly sure how to trigger this bug, although it is very reproducable
(I've seen in in multiple unrelated Hebrew documents I'm editing). I *think* it
has to do with selecting text with the mouse, although just selecting text
doesn't seem to consistently trigger this bug.
