This problem stand in face who want to use Scribus in more than 30% of whole
world that using RTL in their language.
Our past work in Arabic group we can Fix Two issues from three ..
1 - RTL align
2 - RTL shaping
The third one that Scribus PDF extraction in these languages.
So I hope that you fix PDF extraction issue soon as you possible
And I'll try to re-write our patch here to be compatible with devel
branch of Scribus.
