Selection menu for the text

I have a problem with the turn of text. It is offered in turn, under rotation / scaling, only 0 degrees 90 degrees and 270 degrees but not 180 degrees. 
A custom Dreheung would not be bad.

This should be improved because this function is useful even if it is just to make simple dropdown texts such as name plates or the like.

Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1 and marked as enhancement request

You can rotate text any angle you want by putting it inside a textbox, but when mail merging, you cannot put a field inside a textbox, and then, you cannot rotate it.

Actually you can rotate it 0, 90 or 270 degrees, but not 180.
