Reproducible, tested using Windows 8.1 with LibreOffice Versie: 
Build ID: 63150712c6d317d27ce2db16eb94c2f3d7b699f8

Not sure this is a dupe of bug 57215

Kind regards,
Comment 2 Ondřej 2014-05-25 13:47:49 UTC
Thanks for quick response, but I thing that it is not completly the same problem. Because bug 57215 is about exporting rotated text, but in this case is text bonded to line.
I am sorry for my English, but I hope that you can understand to everything I wrote.

Have a nice day :-)

Thanks for your feedback :-). Your English is very well. No worries about that :-).

I just linked them together. I wasn't that sure. Thanks for mentioning this is a different bug.

Kind regards,

Dear Ondřej,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
