docx Text Boxes with both directions of Vertical Text
Text Boxes can have 2 vertical text directions. We only correctly import the bottom to top (90 deg). The more common top to bottom ( 270 deg) is imported as horizontal.

It seems this is covered in bug 111409, even though I left it unconfirmed for now.
"Writer can switch all four text direction for the whole page or just in a frame, but text box have no way to use TB-LR direction"

Could you please check if this is still present after <https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/plugins/gitiles/core/+/ff17478e069cc82681df62514876c06365dd5cd6>? Thanks.
After ff17478e069c, the text is now the correct direction, but
1) The vertical position of the bottom to top shape seems to be relative to the bottom margin, rather than the top margin.
2a) The resize shape to fit text calculations are wrong. (bottom to top shapes are incorrect size)
2b) If you Uncheck "Resize shape to fit text" in Word, bottom to top text direction is wrong, but shapes are the correct size
Do you want to file new bug reports for these issues or track one or all of these here?
Thanks for the testing, no need to do anything right now (let's keep this bug open and not open separate ones).
