In Writers Table Properties dialog the Text Flow tab has a strange looking list under Text orientation. The default value is “Use superordinate object settings” and it is the third item in the list. The second item is “Vertical (top to bottom)” and the fourth is “Vertical (bottom to top)”.
It would be more logical to have the two Vertical options next to each other and the default as last one.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert a table in Writer and open its Properties dialog
2. Go to Text Flow page and open the Text orientation dropdown
The two Vertical options are not following each other.
The two Vertical options should be next to each other and the “Use superordinate object settings” default should be the last.

It seems https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sw/uiconfig/swriter/ui/tabletextflowpage.ui?r=387200f2#300 may be a code pointer.

Proposed patch: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/88410
Ideally, "Use superordinate object setting" would be the first item. But the patch is an improvement anyway. Thanks for fixing.
