Column widths of a nested table are saved wrong when text orientation of table parent is set at "vertical". The attribute "style:column-width" in "style:table-column-properties" is set at the column height of the nested table.
Also, table widths of a nested table are saved wrong. The attribute "style:width" of "style:table-properties".

Reproducible? Yes.

Checked Versions: Windows 7 x64
- 4.4.6
- 5.3 alpha

Happened in previous versions? Yes.

Please give clear reproduction steps for arriving at your example document.
I don't understand the problem from your description.

Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the information.

- Adding a table 1x1 (table1). The table1 properties are:
   * the row height is 5cm.
   * the padding is 0.10cm.
   * the column width is the content width.
   * the text orientation in text flow is "vertical".  

- Inserting a paragraph and a nested table 1x2 (table2) with table1. The table2 properties are:
   * the row height is fit to size.
   * the text orientation in text flow is "use superordinate object setting".

The data for table2 in content.xml:
 * style:width is 0.635cm. 
 * style:table-column-width is 0.347cm. 

I think that the style:width should be 4.8 cm and  style:table-column-width should be 2.4 cm for table2

Sorry, I was not focused.

Yes, it is clearly mixing up the width and height due to the rotation.

Setting to NEW.
