Description norbert.paul 2012-12-14 21:04:26 UTC

i miss a solution for the following situation:

I write e. g. a scientific paper (portrait format) with a header. There are tables, that are to wide for portrait format, sometimes. So, the autor rotating the table but not the header.

I wish, that i could set a page to landscape format in the view in LO and set an Opinion "Printing the header like at a portrait format site". 

So, you can work in the table, see the table without rotating the head and you doesn't need tricks like input the table as a picture.

The same should funktion with a OLE-Calc-table.

Confirmed. Status set to NEW. This is a request for a facility that has never existed i.e., changing page orientation (portrait to landscape) while maintaining header / footer position. I have amended the summary to be clearer. Set to enhancement. Priority set to low as there are viable workarounds i.e., rotate the table on the page.
