Dear Open Office staff

Open office has been my prefered word processer for the last two years due to the fact that it´s an international project and more importantly isn´t microsoft.  I currently need to work with it in Arabic and have found that I either don´t know how to use it correctly or, as I believe, the more likely conclusion is that there are some problems with the program. 

These problems occur when:

- I try to insert English text (such as a quote or name) into an Arabic text by using cut and paste or by just trying to write it in,

- I try to put a full stop at the end of a parragraph or sentence,

- I try to insert numbers and any characters other than arabic ones into the text,

Any work on this would be greatly appreciated and would allow me to continue using Open Office in the future.  I´m not sure exactly who this email has to get to but I´m sending it to various addresses in the hope that it reaches the right people. Of course if it was fowarded within the organization that would also help.

getting rid of value "enhancement" for field "severity".
For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.
