I added text rotation feature to Impress tables for MSO compatibility in
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=100926. Now it works only by importing text rotation from PPTX / ODP or set via API, but not available on the GUI. This text rotation is similar to character rotation (in Writer), has only two values: 90° and 270°, so we might use the same radio button design for this text rotation. The question is where this option should be added, since I can't see a suitable place in the Impress' Table Properties dialog.
Steps to Reproduce:
No option for text rotation inside an impress table.
We should be able to set text rotation on GUI.

How about radiobuttons in the Character dialog like we have in Writer? And if the feature is used frequently, what I doubt, quick access with toogle buttons in an extra submenu could be handy. Though Rotate is already used for objects.
Suggestion for the UI given in c3, likely a simple easyhack.
Developer evaluation is done: not an easy hack.
