Description Munzir Taha 2018-05-20 12:42:01 UTC
This is needed when okular view mode is set to facing pages. If a PDF file contains the PageDirection R2L, okular should default to display it in a right to left reading direction without a need to enable the option from the settings. Acrobat reader already does that.
