 Regina Henschel 2022-09-10 20:29:59 UTC ```Created attachment 182351 [details] Example document to see the current bad position Currently the position of the text frame is calculated this way: 1. Get left distance L from the left edge of the text area rectangle to the left edge of the un-rotated shape. 2. Get top distance T from the top edge of the text area rectangle to the top edge of the un-rotated shape. 3. Get the snap-rectangle of the rotated shape 4. Set the top of the text area rectangle distance T down to the top of the snap-rectangle. 5. Set the left of the text area rectangle distance L right from the left edge of the snap-rectangle. That positiones the text area rectangle far away from the place it has in Word. I suggest to use this way: 1. Get the center C of the text area rectangle of the un-rotated shape. 2. Rotate this point C the same way as the shape is rotated (which means a rotation around the center of the shape). You get a point C'. 3. Position the text area rectangle so, that its center coincides with C'.``` Regina Henschel 2022-09-10 20:30:49 UTC ```Created attachment 182352 [details] Analyse of the current bad position``` Regina Henschel 2022-09-10 20:32:01 UTC ```Created attachment 182353 [details] Proposed better position The blue rectangle is the position, which I propose for the text area rectangle.``` Regina Henschel 2022-09-10 20:34:00 UTC ```Created attachment 182354 [details] Original document with added blue rectangle This is the original document with blue rectangle added with the position I propose. Open it in Word to see, that this position is near to the original text position in Word.``` Dieter 2022-10-02 08:37:19 UTC `Regina, I agree, that improvement is needed here and your suggestion sounds reasonable to me. So I change status to NEW, but I'm not an expert in this field.`
