Description vaaydayaasra 2018-08-30 11:05:40 UTC
Description:
Text can normally be rotated either 90 or 270 degrees through the Character > Position dialog box. This works even in tables, but only if the table’s text direction is set to Left-to-right. If the table’s text direction is set to Right-to-left through the Table properties dialog, no rotation takes effect. See the screenshot of a document, where there are two identical tables, one marked as LTR and the other as RTL. Text is rotated as expected in the LTR table, while nothing seems to happen in the other one.

This bug was first reported on Launchpad for LO 5.4.6.2 on Ubuntu 17.10 at: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/1772445 . After my initial report, I have upgraded to LO 6.0.3.2 and can still reproduce the problem. Another user on Launchpad confirmed the bug on LO 6.0.3.2 and 6.1.0.3, as well.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Writer, create a table and write some text in it.
2. Select the text and rotate it by 90 degrees through the Character > Position dialog box.
3. Change the directionality of the table to Right-to-Left through the Table properties dialog.

Actual Results:
The text becomes horizontal, as it was before rotation.

Expected Results:
The text should be rotated by 90 degrees, as happens in a Left-to-Right table.


Reproducible: Always
