I am wanting to copy and paste from a logos book into a open office document so that I can translate with more room on a page.   So I have copied and pasted the work but to format it a little better it seems really wonky.

I paste say 10 sentences of Hebrew.....I will never get question one....then trying to add spaces between the lines it seems the Hebrew formating of things confuses me.. I seem to just give up when I can't make things work correctly....

Is there someone that can make a video how to do this?  I assume professors or pastors might do this for their own papers that they present at conferences and such...

Thanks in advance

I'd need an screen shot ... but are you mixing right-to-left print with left-to-right?

In LibreOffice, Tools => Options, Language Settings have enabled CTL (Complex Text Layout).

Ok, I have found this in Open office and it seems to be making things a little bit better.  I will play around with this for a bit see if I will atleast live with things.

You could also set up a table with cells that go full page width, then alternate rows between Hebrew text and your translation.
