Hello,
I am using the new Apache version now and was disappointed to discover it seems to carry the same problem from previous version...
to the issue:
How can I change the paragraph direction to Right to Left (not Justification, which works fine)?
1. the option to add the [Right-to-Left] button to the toolbar does not seem to work.
2. the option to use this same button does not seem to work.
3. I am writing in hebrew.

Can anyone shed some light? am I doing something wrong?

Thank you

Thank you Robert, that was very helpful.
I didn't mention but the OS was of a Mac (OSx Snow Leopard 10.6).
I found the same thing under the preferences menu (OpenOffice>Preferences>Languages)
thanks again!
