Description sasha.libreoffice 2012-02-01 04:36:37 UTC
Created attachment 56442 [details]
presentation with rotated object

attachment contains:
1) on first slide slightly rotated picture
2) on second slide screenshot of first slide in MSO 2007 russian

Expected: picture on first slide is slightly rotated
Actually: no rotation

reproduced in LibO 3.3.4. and 3.6.0 master on Fedora 64 bit

Confirmed with:
Build ID: own W7 debug build
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit

Picture is not rotated, background in grey colors.
Comment 2 Lennard Wasserthal 2012-09-03 13:45:08 UTC
Custom shapes are also not saved rotated either and when you try to save a rotated custom shape or picture you end up with it notably shifted or sometimes not present, and other objects sometimes very distorted (turned a rhomb into a rectangle!)

@Rainer Bielefeld

But both is the same bug!

WriteShapeTransformation is called without an rotate argument.
(from oox/source/export/shapes.cxx)
WriteShapeTransformation oox/source/export/drawingml.cxx accepts an rotate parameter and works if it is present, but it is a template so the program doesn't
Yield a warning.

Should I handle this?
I just have to find out where the transform can be read, perhaps from the import routines or the shapes directly.
Perhaps I can do it this weekend or earlier.

Patch generated. 


The patch fixes also

bug 34897

bug 56121

so I guess I'll threat them as dupes.

There HAS some work to be done, though, arrows for example are twitched and their custom shape control points run to their limits when touched, up arrows are first-invisi-then-box exported, sheared stuff causes glitches and there were many todos in oox/source/export/shapes.cxx
good, I file that as new bug, unless already happened.

Lennard committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":


fdo#45495 pptx Export saves rotation of pictures,shapes,text

The patch should be included in the daily builds available at

The picture in the attached document is still not rotated. Tested in Version: (x64)
Build ID: 1ec314fa52f458adc18c4f025c545a4e8b22c159
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: default; VCL: win;

and in Version: (x64)

Reason is, that it is no ordinary rotation, but a 3D Effect "rotate around z-axis".

This is the xml code

              <a:rot lat="0" lon="0" rev="3600000"/>

Repro 7.2+. All X, Y, Z rotation don't work for 3D in MSO.

Comment 17 Regina Henschel 2021-03-23 11:07:31 UTC
3D rotation is only possible for custom-shapes in extrusion mode. So this issue has two steps:
1. import shapes from pptx so, that the 3D rotation are rendered. ==> bug 70039
2. import a 3D-rotated image not as image-frame but as custom shape with image background.
