Description Regina Henschel 2018-02-08 19:54:42 UTC
Start with a new text document and insert an image. Anchor it to page. Test that the image moves correctly, if you use the arrow keys. Rotate the image e.g. by 45 degree. Test the arrow keys again. The movement of the image does not follow the arrow keys.

I can confirm with Version:

Where in the GUI? Which Arrow keys?

Rotation on the Sidebar Properties Deck -> Position and Size content panel's drop list box moves up or down the list rotating image to match.  The 360 deg rotation medallion there controls the image.

Rotation on the Image -> Properties dialog Image tab? In the Rotation Angle area, arrows on the spin box control rotates the image (if slowly 1/100 deg steps) when applied. While clicking on a 15 deg index mark (or dragging) the 360 deg rotation medallion works when applied.

Aren't <Alt>+[UP,DONW,LEFT,RIGHT] controls to rotate Draw objects? And, are they still working at 6.0--they seem to now be fine positioning controls (even in Rotation mode). With <Shift>+[UP,DOWN,LEFT,RIGHT] acting as coarse movement controls.

> Where in the GUI? Which Arrow keys?

The UP, RIGHT, DOWN, LEFT keys on the keyboard. If a shape is selected, they allow movement of the shape. That works with unrotated images the same, but not for rotated images.

No. It is fine move by pixel.

As it always has been.

 With <Shift>+[UP,DOWN,LEFT,RIGHT] acting as coarse

That has not changed too for shapes and unrotated images, but does not work for rotated images.

I am sorry I misread things. But now I follow. It is the _movement_ of the Page anchored image, not its rotation that is wonky.

But yes, when anchored to Page (not with defaults anchored to Paragraph) movement of the "rotated" image does not track with the <Alt>+[UP,DONW,LEFT,RIGHT] or <Shift>+[UP,DONW,LEFT,RIGHT] or [UP,DONW,LEFT,RIGHT] movment commands.

Anchored to Paragraph movement seems correct.

RotateFlyFrame3: Initial support added
First steps to get a rotated FlyFrame and content
that only uses layouted sizes/positions and does not
change the model data (except rotation). This works
with persistence, after reload the rotation can be
resetted with going back to the original FrameSize.
Lot of stuff not yet working, experimental state.

Up, Left, Down arrows move the page-anchored, rotated image towards left and top, Right arrow moves it towards right and top.

Un-Ccing developer for the moment, old regression & very high workload.
