objects created in Writer ready to be saved in DOC and tested...

Problem description: 

If you draw rectangle; rotate it for example 90 degree; group it with some other shapes (another rectangle for example) and save it in DOC... the shape that was rotated will no be rotated. It only happens if objects are grouped... otherwise, shapes will be saved correctly. 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Draw rectangle
2. Copy that rectangle
3. Rotate copied rectangle using available option from toolbar Drawing Properties
4. Group rotated recntagle with the first one
5. Save file as DOC

Current behavior:

Rotated shape is not rotated, ie. original position is remained.

Expected behavior:

Rotated shape should remain rotated even if shapes are grouped. 
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: 4.0.4.2 release

Addition info: This happens when file is opened in Microsoft Office Word (that would be sixth step to reproduce).

Hi  Ljiljan,

I cannot confirm this at the moment, but to start I make the summary a bit more clear.

thanks for reporting!

ZIP containing ODT/DOC/DOCX/PDFs of the original file with text in the shapes.

I am attaching an archive showing how the original document (modified to include text in the shape) appears under MacOS 10.6.8 running TDF/LO v4.0.3.3 and Word 2011 for Mac. I have included the text to illustrate rotation direction and how this bug relates to bug 37828. In this particular case the resultant DOCX actually appears worse than the DOC. Whether opened using LO Writer or MS Word 2011 the DOC/DOCX do not include correctly defined grouped AutoShapes, when the group includes one or more rotated objects.

Setting status to NEW, version to 4.0.3.3 (although it probably goes right back to OOo), and platform to All as a result of testing under MacOS. I have also observed the same behaviour under Crunchbang 11 running TDF/LO v4.1.0.4.

All versions exhibit similar problem with the group containing one rotated object when saving to DOC. Appears to be a mild change / improvement in handling under v4.3 and v4.4 but still problematic. Version set to "Inherited from OOo".

... and reopening using LO (not Word as specified in summary). Apologies. I do not have access to Word at present. I have attached the DOCs for someone else to test.
