Description Timur 2015-01-28 18:53:37 UTC
Rotated text in table expands cell instead of flowing down
Steps to reproduce:
1. insert table 2x2
2. in A1 field write normal text to see that it flows down if wider than the cell
3. in A2 field write text rotated for 90 degrees (via Format-Character-Position) to see that it widens the cell instead of flowing down (which with rotated text means going right)

Really strange, I have no idea how I can insert a line break.  I looked for it, but I could not find it.

For me reproducible with LO 4.4.0.3, Win 8.1, as far as nobody has a solution how this can be done.

Comment 5 Cor Nouws 2016-08-29 14:54:21 UTC
note the difference with rotation set by table properties - but that does not allow to set vertical text in a cell with the top side of the text left – which IMO gives the most natural situation for in any case non RTL languages
Comment 6 Timur 2017-07-06 17:56:44 UTC
This bug applies to text rotated via Format-Character-Position or right-click in the cell Styles-Edit style-Position. 
There's Character option "Fit to Line" available with rotation, but I can't figure out what it does? Help is of no help at https://help.libreoffice.org/index.php?title=Common/Font_Position. 

As Cor noted, there's rotation set by table properties which expands right. It's top side of the text left is another enh. bug.
