Description moshed 2004-12-14 20:34:56 UTC
When writing in a cell it is possible to select right to left direction, so when you type first Hebrew word 
and after that English word, the English word aligns to the Left of the Hebrew word, and that is the way 
it should be.
In headers and footers there is no way to select Right to Left direction, so when typing Hebrew word 
and after that English word, the English word aligns to the Right of the Hebrew word.

Added oooqa keyword.

This is a question probably best answered by Shoshannah Forbes.

CONFIRMED with 1.1.2 on osx, and 1.9.m62 on Linux. Updating platform + OS to ALL.

Hi Niklas,

as OC told me this is not in the spec but ha to be. So DEFECT and target later.


Please check it again using OOo1.9m69

Testing with M69 on Linux- the header directionality is always LTR (on both RTL
and LTR sheets), and I don't see any way to control the directionality at all
for it.

looks ok in 2.0.4
Comment 7 alan 2007-01-31 13:02:05 UTC
This is *not* ok in 2.0.4. My previous post was mistaken and was meant for a
different issue.

What about this issue? it's open for 5 years and still no change.

The problem still exists in 3.1.1... You can't set the headers/footers of a calc
sheet to be RTL. It doesn't even consider the page layout/settings for
directionality ( = setting the sheet and page to be RTL doesn't change the header).

Reset assigne to the default "".
