Description brooksguy 2021-04-04 22:05:14 UTC
I create a text box in Writer, insert one word of text, then rotate the text box to about 45 degrees. This is the only page and text in the document. The document prints just fine as created. But, if I close and reopen the document, the text now appears across the first line of the page, with the rotated box appearing below in the position initially placed; the text is no longer in the box.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a text box. insert one word of text.
2. rotate text box to about 45 degrees
3. save and close document and reopen

Actual Results:
text is no longer in box after document reopen. Text is at top of page at left margin. Box is where left when document saved, but no longer contains text.

Expected Results:
Text should have been in box, where it was when document was saved.

Reproducible: Always

1. Do you save as ODT? 
2. Did you search in existing bugs, the are a lot with rotation?

Writer document where text fails to remain rotated

Document was saved in docx format. When reopened, the text box remains rotated as it was when saved, but the text is no longer in the box; instead, it is at top of page aligned as regular text.

Rule of thumb is search before reporting. Because many common problems are already reported. 
This is a duplicate of bug 128830 but basically this is a bug 82627. There are many more in See Also. 

Note that report itself is wrong, you always need to attach source ODF and just write step to save as DOC/X. No need to attach doc/x, that's test. 
This attached test opens in MSO rotated,as explained in noted bugs.
