Description jamilnour 2010-05-19 17:48:24 UTC

When we import a docx document with RTL text direction active, OO opens it as
LTR text direction.

It seems OO can't treat the <w:bidi/> tag from the docx format.

This post can help:

Note: *.doc documents are working well

MRU->HBRINKM: see attached docx, the CTL/RTL text direction turns into Western LTR.
