Description Gary Houston 2015-01-06 05:11:12 UTC
Created attachment 111823 [details]
smartart shape rotated 90 degrees with 3D rotated text.

Like in 87488 and its related bugs, but this one was created in SmartArt. A shape is rotated 90 degrees to the left, and the text is 3-D rotated by 270 degrees. In Word the text is the right way up, but in LibreOffice it's rotated to the right.

Created in Word 2010 on Windows by adding a smartart shape (3 chevrons), deleting 2 using cut from right-click menu, entering text on the remaining shape and rotating the shape 90 degrees. Text is then rotated by selecting the text, using right-click menu to find text formatting and within 3D rotation, rotating by 270 degrees on the Z axis.

Z-axis rotation may have been 90 degrees. There was something odd about it.

Confirmed on Linux on master. Not a regression from what i can see.

Blue arrow is stretch the width of the page and the text is rotated 45 degrees.

Thanks Jay. Bug 88090 is not an exact duplicate, since it uses a different method of rotating the text. It may be possible to fix one without fixing the other, so if this one is fixed, please check that one too.

Thanks Gary. Yes it will be checked once this one is fixed to make sure it is also fixed.
