Before save. New created textbox and rotated

Create new shape
Add TextBox
Open shape option and rotate for any angle.
Resoult may be very strange, for example - shape in one place, textbox in another :)

Hmm... after save it for attach into this issue I reopen and it fine.
Seems problem only when I create new shape+textbox and rotate it.
I will attach both screenshots

Please look.

ps. Sorry for my English

Where you see beta1 in "Version"? :) Still only alpha.
In subject you may see 4.4.0.0.beta1 from today.
OS Gentoo Linux ~amd64 (unstable)

At home gentoo linux too. Same issue.
Ok. Reboot into win7_x64...

Are you really about new 4.4 feature? Not about old shape+text?

Text is also not Rotated in DOCX shapes
Comment 13 Luke 2017-03-11 21:47:15 UTC
This is a Writer specific issue. In Draw, Impress, and Calc the text will rotate with the shape. The "TextBox" shape does rotate in writer, but all other shapes do not.
Comment 14 Luke 2017-03-11 23:44:40 UTC
Text is Rotated in MS-DOC shapes. See Bug 106501. 

The behavior appears to be reversed. Text should be rotated in Native ODF/DOCX and it is not. Text should not be rotated in .DOC and it is.

Still repro in Version: 6.2.0.0.alpha0+ (x64)
Build ID: 7bc99b2ab93f6a2ca30eff738ac1669375d1a6a2
The text in Shapes with Text Boxes is still not rotated with the shape.
Comment 17 Miklos Vajna 2019-06-20 07:06:55 UTC
Rotated complex text in shapes is a relatively large missing feature, just to set expectations. :-)
