Comment 4 Maxim Monastirsky 2013-11-18 09:16:47 UTC
Confirmed with & master build (Build ID: f7e6521efca5e5966a65e84848a1c35d71ba1a0b) under Fedora 19 (64-bit).

Reproducible also with a new doc document:
1) Open a new document in Word (I've used Word 2010 SP2)
2) Import any image
3) Rotate it
4) Save it to DOC
5) Open it with LibreOffice
6) The image isn't rotated

Comment 11 Justin L 2016-02-15 18:34:05 UTC
Unable to replicate with JPG or PNG files - they always import with rotated settings.

The images in the example attachment (Dossier réponses-E42-session2012.doc) are .WMF files.  Those images are not rotated in .doc (inherited from OOo - bibisect-43all) up to today (LO 5.2dev).  In 5.2dev, the option to rotate or flip WMF images is disabled.  They need to be compressed to PNG or JPG first.

Updating summary and version according to the (thanks, useful) comment#11 from justin
Comment 13 Timur 2017-08-31 13:20:39 UTC
Repro with 6.0+.
Comment 14 Xisco Faulí 2017-10-03 14:36:01 UTC
Still reproducible in

@Armin, this is still reproducible after the EMF refactoring. would you like to take a look at it?
Comment 15 Armin Le Grand 2017-10-18 07:21:48 UTC
Hi Xisco, no change here by EMF+ changes (if it is EMF+ at all), problem is unchanged more that rotation is not imported
