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.
Comment 6 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-01-10 10:49:16 UTC
Thanks Gary. Yes it will be checked once this one is fixed to make sure it is also fixed.
