Description alan 2006-02-09 17:51:00 UTC
If CTL is enabled, sequence checking is by default also enabled. This has caused OOo on some installations to inexplicably reverse some Hebrew words. One power user even gave up using OOo for two months until it became clear what the problem was. Since sequence checking is irrelevant for Hebrew anyway, and it can cause seious problems, the default (at least for Hebrew) should be changed to "false".

Apparently this is causing problems in Persian as well. See Issue 66743.

3.0.0 still has sequence checking set by default. Is this a conscious decision, or is it because nobody has gotten around to changing the setting?
