What are you using to open the PDF file? I am guessing its not LibeOffice.

How was the PDF created with what Language settings? What Language are you using in your PDF file and what version of LibreOffice and operating system are you using?

I wonder if you need to enable the appropriate language support. For example TOOLS > OPTIONS > LANGUAGE SETTINGS. You may need to select, depending on language, ASIAN and COMPLEX TEXT LAYOUT (CTL) and then from the extended Menu, the appropriate settings to enable the correct text direction.... Peter
