Description himajin100000 2018-03-16 20:08:53 UTC
see steps to reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download f-orientation-3.jpg(or f-orientation-6.jpg or f-orientation-8.jpg) and f-orientation-1.jpg(just for reference) from

2. OK Case:

2-a. Run Writer
2-b. Insert -> Image from the main menu.
2-c. Specify f-orientation-3.jpg and click Open
2-d. A dialog "Rotate int standard orientation?" appears.
2-e. Click Yes
2-f. the inserted image looks like f-orientation-1.jpg
if you have chosen No in 2-e, the image will look as 180 degrees rotated version.

3. Now, NG case:

3-a. Run Calc
3-b. Insert -> Image from the main menu.
3-c. Specify f-orientation-3.jpg and click Open
3-d. No dialog appears.
3-e. there is nothing to do.
3-f. the image will look as 180 degrees rotated version.

Actual Results:  
as written in 3-d and 3-e

Expected Results:
work as written in 2-d and 2-e in Calc,Draw and Impress

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
I will submit a patch. 

Note: the patch would not cover "drag-dropping an image" into Calc, Draw and Impress. I haven't gone that far.

Note: This patch will not change writer's dialog into "weld" version

Note: I'm still not sure what to pass as the first argument for Application::CreateMessageDialog

Wait for a while. logerrit is complaining.

! [remote rejected]           HEAD -> refs/drafts/master (you are not allowed to upload merges)
error: failed to push some refs to 'ssh://logerrit/core'

I have been doing some cleanups of my cygwin environment, like the ones I carelessly configure-d on home directory rather than build directory, and that might be one of the cause.
