[Libreoffice-ux-advise] Page break indicator and RTL

Hi all,

Lior reported a problem with the positioning of the page break
indicators in RTL UI [0]. I can't really find a cool solution on how to
place that control to fit all cases like
 * RTL UI / LTR document
 * RTL UI / RTL document
 * LTR UI / LTR document
 * LTR UI / RTL document

In single page view I don't mind moving the control to the right, but
we'll face problems for book view. We will also have troubles with the
popup menu for LTR document / UI and book mode when the control is on
the right.

My question for you is when to draw it on what side... and how to make
sure the popup menu never goes outside the Writer window?

Lior: the other question for you is: what to do if a document mixes RTL
and LTR paragraphs?

Thanks for your help,
