Hi :)
I think we have a question that the Users List 
don't seem to know the answer too.  If you can help at all that would be great but don't worry 
about it if you can't.  It's not your main 
mission after all and i have asked another list that might know too.  

So, in a numbered list using an RTL language the numbers are still coming 
up as LTR but just on the other side of the screen.  I can't do this 
well in email but something like




Does anyone have a cure?Regards from 
Tom :)

I've recently found another incompatibility between LO Writer and MS
Word again. As you may know I'm working on my thesis and I have to
rules of my university template which is also provided as a .doc or .tex

The template is originally in Farsi as an RTL language. When you open
the template in MS Word, Outline Numberings are shown in Right to Left
order. For example sub-chapter (section) 1 of chapter 3 is represented
as "‮۳-۱-‬" (with right to left order) in MS Office and LaTeX templates.
But when I import that template in LO Writer, regardless of direction of
the paragraph, sub-chapter 1 of chapter 3 is always shown as "‫۳.۱-‬"
which is still in left to right format.

You can practically see this wrong numbering direction in Chapter 3 of
file below which is a partially translated version of my university
The chapter 3 is not translated and you can see that by changing
direction of paragraph of "‫۳.۱-‬" to LTR, it only changes to "3.1-",
both of them in left to right direction

Generally speaking numbers (like ۱.۹۹ = 1.99) in Farsi are from left to
right and characters are from right to left, but for Outline Numberings
(i.e. Numbering of Headings) most books and publications use the right
to left direction as in characters and not as in simple numbers. But it
seems that LO Writer represents Outline Numberings like simpler numbers
from left to right.

I want to know is there
 any method to show numbering of headings
(Tools->Outline_Numbering) in right to left direction? (e.g. sub-chapter
1 of chapter 3 as "‮۳-۱-‬" instead of "‫۳.۱-‬")
