Description Dotan Cohen 2010-07-22 12:23:13 UTC
The attached document was created in OOo Writer 3.x with the PDF Export plugin
installed, I do not remember if the Hybrid option was enabled or not when
exporting. When opening in "soffice" on Kubuntu 9.10 with OOo 3.2, the
application that opens is Draw, which indicates that this is not a Hybrid document.

When opened in Draw, the text is backwards, that is that the letters are in the
revers order in the text. So the text "שלום עולם" appears as "םלוע םולש". The
file displays fine if opened in Okular or any other PDF viewer.

Seems like a duplicate of issue #90800
Comment 4 kaplanlior 2010-12-14 12:23:56 UTC
The is indeed a duplicate of issue #90800. It can be closed, as version 1.0.4 of
the extension imports Hebrew in the right order. There are still other problems
with Hebrew as reported at issue #115184.

OP here, this is indeed a dupe. I don't have permissions to mark it as such,
please have an admin do so.
