Yes. but before that we should enable CTL support using: Tools -> Options -> Language Settings -> Languages. from: https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/General_Glossary#Complex_Text_Layout_.28CTL‌​.29 –  Ali Jan 29 '13 at 17:57

In Libreoffice 3, in the menu of tools > Options > language settings > languages

In Enhanced language support section, you should check "Enabled for Complex text layout (CTL)" to enable the key combination for text writing directions. Without this option, your Ctrl+Shift keys won't take effect. When enabled, then you can use

  • Ctrl+Shift+D or Ctrl+Right Shift Key - switch to right-to-left text entry
  • Ctrl+Shift+A or Ctrl+Left Shift Key - switch to left-to-right text entry
