Description Regina Henschel 2018-06-22 16:28:04 UTC
Insert a 2x2 table shape in Draw. Enter a short paragraph in one cell. Save the file.
Select the table. Apply Fontwork. Use for example style:rotate, adjust:left and mirror. The text in the cell will run along the cell border. Save the file.

Reopen the file. The text turned back to normal text.

The information "Fontwork" is not saved. And because it makes no sense to me, to have "Fontwork" on a table, I suggest to disable the Fontwork tool for table shapes.

Remark: Disable Fontwork is done e.g. for measure lines. Normal lines and connectors can have Fontwork applied, measure lines not.

[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.]

I looked again, also for measure lines it is not disabled, although it does nothing there. So for measure lines to Fontwork should be disabled.
