Description Regina Henschel 2018-06-22 13:01:55 UTC
Created attachment 143035 [details]
Testfile for fontwork on shape textbox.

Open attached file. It has a shape 'text box'. It has "Fontwork" applied, with style "rotate" and adjust "center". [Hint: The tool Fontwork is not contained by default. You need to customize your UI to get it. It is the item "Fontwork" with command .uno:FontWork in the category Format.]

Click on the shape to activate it. You will see a larger handle in the left top corner. You can use it to round the corners of a text box.

Now drag the handle. Notice, when you have a round corner, the text jumps to the inside of the shape, with opposite direction. Drag the handle as most as possible to the right. You will get a circle. Notice, that the text is now centered, outside on the left side.

Expected behavior: The text stays on top, only its shape becomes more and more round.

and approve your proposal. A choice between outside and inside would be also interesting.

Toggling inside/outside works via the "Mirror" button in the Fontwork tool, left of the alignment buttons.
