Description wope 2011-06-18 08:59:07 UTC
1. enter any text in a cell
2. Format -> Cells  and set in Alignment the Degrees to 90° or 270°
-> the text is on the left side of the cell
3. set the degrees to any othe3r value e.g. 91°
-> the text is in the middle of the cell
 this appears on 3.3.3 and 3.4.0

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.3.3  – WIN7  Home Premium  (64bit) English UI [OOO330m19 (Build:301)]", wope tested with linux 3.2.2 Release.

The reported effect is a particular effect of a more complex bug, my observations show that in dialog 'Format > Cells > Alignment - Degrees' and 'Format > Cells > Alignment - Reference Edge' destroys horizontal alignment. I checked With a very simple "This is a Test" in 'A1', alignment left. My results please see in attached screenshots.

I belive this one is a DUP of
Bug 36805 - Text alignment in Cells with text orientation other than 0. 

Can you please check whether other observed effects are also covered with the Fix for Bug 36805 and if yes mark this one as a DUP?

Is already clear in what 3.4.x the fix from Bug 36805 will be integrated? 3.4.1RC1 still shows problem.

Dear wope,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
