Hi Luigi, thanks for reporting.

The graphic in your file looks transparent, but rotation happens.
Inserting a graphic from a file and rotating works fine for me.

Comment 2 Luigi Boccia 2013-12-05 10:12:29 UTC
 the image was pasted from Power Point. It is not trasparent. It gets trasparent after rotation. That is an error which should not happen.

If you copy and paste any image from Power Point you have similar issues.

Sorry, I can't help, I have not pp.

Please try using other graphics format in Menu/Edit/Paste-special [Shift+Ctrl+V]
Comment 4 Luigi Boccia 2013-12-06 11:18:22 UTC
I've checked with Power Point.
The original image is a pdf screenshot (therefore a bitmap). However the same error happens also when I try to paste polygons etc from pp.

When I try to paste this images in a bitmap format nothing happens in LO.
When I try to paste as metafile I see the image pasted correctly but I get the rotation error. It disappears only if I convert the image in LO in bitmap. However, the image quality decreases sensibly.

The image seems to be: EMF+

Looks OK in 6.0+. I guess it's new EMF+ so I set to Fixed.
