I use openSUSE 12.2, and after use 'Text' in Drawing toolbar, it don't support 'block selection', so I use the Frame to input text, after that I wanna rotate it like 'Text', but it doesn't have this option.
Could you pleae give more information about your bug.
For me it is possible to rotate a frame with LO 126.96.36.199 (Win7 Home, 64bit).
-> from the DRAWING toolbar select the RECTANGLE and place it inside the WRITER document. Then select this rectangle with one left mouse click and make a right mouse click on it and go to POSITION AND SIZE and there to the tab ROTATION and now you can rotate the rectangle.
Or is there a misunderstanding from my side?

Basic ODT example showing: text box, frame, text box in a frame.
This appears to be a shortcoming in the LO UI as the ODF specification currently supports rotation of a frame. For clarity, all text boxes (inserted by selecting T on the Drawing toolbar) are frames:
<draw:frame text:anchor-type="paragraph" draw:z-index="0" draw:style-name="gr1" svg:width="20.01mm" svg:height="20.01mm" draw:transform="rotate (-3.14159265358979) translate (20.0025mm 30.00375mm)">
<text:p>Text in a text box.</text:p>
... and they are rotated by inclusion of the draw:transform attribute of the <draw:frame> element. A frame (Insert > Frame...) has a similar structure:
<draw:frame draw:style-name="fr1" draw:name="Frame1" text:anchor-type="paragraph" svg:y="10mm" svg:width="20mm" draw:z-index="1">
<text:p text:style-name="P1">Text in a frame.</text:p>
... yet it cannot be rotated. Right-click on a text box > Position and Size... > offers a dialog with a Rotation tab. Right-click on a frame > Frame... > there are no similar options available.
