Description Fynn Godau 2019-04-02 13:10:36 UTC
When a picture is embedded into a document, it can't be scaled to be larger than the page is (which is expected). However, once it is rotated by 90° or 270°, it can't be scaled to be larger so that when rotated back it wouldn't fit anymore.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Embed a portrait image into a landscape page (or the other way round).
2. Rotate image by 90°.
3. Try to scale image up.

Actual Results:
Image jumps to first page and remains at a certain maximum scaling.

Expected Results:
Image should scale correctly.

Reproducible: Always

I can confirm this still exists and is a probable duplicate (or at least linked to) 115934 and 130079.
