Thank you for reporting the bug. It seems you're using an old version of LibreOffice. Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ? I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.

If it is still present in the latest version please add a Draw document, that shows the expected result and and Writer document to make the problem more visible. It would also be helpful, if you could write in English. It doesn't have to be perfect and you can use a translator like deepl.com

I have update this bug with two files
- one from LibreOffice Drawer (for example)
- and one from LibreOffice Writer where I can`t distribut the text-fields

I have add some small screenshots in the added files

Thank you, Charly. Enhancement request is clear to me. So let's as Design-Team for their opinion (perhaps duplicate of bug 95171)

Yes, the draw shapes can be <Shift> multi-selected and can then be aligned. So, seems feasible to be able to also distribute the selection equidistant vertical or horizontal.  Not sure anything more complex would be needed.

That is the work flow would be to position one shape where the distribution would start, another where the distribution would end. Then multi-select. Then distribute the selected shapes equidistant across the vertical or the horizontal distance between the start and the end shape.

Given special nature of Draw shapes (not really frame'd), don't know this would have to address more general work needed for aligning frames as for bug 95171

Let's make the other ticket a bit broader in scope.
