fdo#81384: writerfilter: turn the horrible btLr cell text dir hack
... by 5 degrees to starboard, which lets the row in the bugdoc appear,
altough the height is a bit insufficient still.  Why that works, is a
nautic mystery to me, i'd say this whole btLr emulation nonsense needs
to be keel-hauled, but after this patch i'll need some rum, arrrr...

The BTLR part is fixed now after bug #128880 in:

Build ID: 1842276ed4785ff5198bdbc4ce6fe752315c8657
CPU threads: 16; OS: Linux 4.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: hu-HU (hu_HU.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

The font size is acting weird in the first cell: "DAFO CAMPOFRIO" should be 18pt but its only 8pt. 
This is a new regression, the font size was good in bibisect-linux-64-6.4

Comment 7 Xisco Faulí 2020-03-11 09:50:13 UTC
Actually the original issue reported here ( problem with vertical text ) was fixed by https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=8fdbda18b593e7014e44a0fd590bbf98d83258b7 in LibreOffice 6.3. Later on, the text disappeared in https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=435ab51ec8920033b7865f27f4afee8a852a0b31 ( bug 128880 ) and the font was fine up to that moment. Recently bug 128880 was fixed in 
https://git.libreoffice.org/core/commit/74f0105a2c140d078932576b457a327f3d2490a6 and the font problem is already happening. Adapting the description.

Comment 8 Gabor Kelemen 2020-03-11 22:04:23 UTC
The font size change is not related to the BTLR work.

It is possible to highlight all the content of this top left cell, then select Table properties from the popup menu.
After that on the Text Flow page the Text orientation box is in indeterminate state, but changing to Horizontal makes the text appear with "varying" font size.
This was 18pt at the top of the uptodate bibisect-linux-64-6.4 but started to change to 8pt in bibisect-linux-64-6.5 at:

tdf#90069 DOCX: fix character style of new table rows
Comment 9 Miklos Vajna 2020-03-12 08:16:42 UTC
Thanks. So this is rather an implementation error in the docx table style improvements, adjusting keywords accordingly.
