Created attachment 33545 [details] The Word document contains RTL content I use paragraph.cloneProperties().getFBiDi to get the directional information for paragraphs. When HWPFDocument reads Arabic/Hebrew documents, I would expect that getFBiDi returns TRUE for the RTL paragraphs. However, it returns FALSE that represents "LTR" direction.

File the following as not exceedingly useful. Y, I'd want the same behavior that you expected. With a test doc with one paragraph of Arabic and one paragraph of English, I was not able to see any difference in the paragraph properties or in the run properties between those two paragraphs and their runs. In the MS-DOC spec, p. 275, there should be a specification for LtrPara/RtlPara or LtrRun/Rtl run in the FCI enumeration, which is stored in the CidFci. I don't think we're currently extracting these command fields...could be wrong though.
