1) Open Writer
2) Draw a shape
3) The 'Drawing Object Properties' toolbar's 'Alignment' split button (.uno:ObjectAlign) is disabled
This is a different case for impress/draw where the split button is active after drawing a shape. This causes a problem to what user's expect as when they insert an image in writer, there are vertical and horizontal alignment buttons to use.

Not a bug - if you anchor as character it is treated like a character and then you can align it. Marking as NOTABUG.
Anchoring it as character only permits you to change the vertical alignment of the shape on the line and the horizontal alignment buttons do not work.
Reproducible with LO 220.127.116.11, Win 8.1
If I draw a shape it is by default Anchor = To Paragraph and the Alignment section in the right mouse click context menu is disabled.
If I change the Anchor to To Page or To Character then I can move the shape with the cursor vertically and horizontally, but the Alignment section is still disabled.
If I change the Anchor to As Character then I can move the shape with the cursor vertically (but not horizontally) and the Alignment section shows me the options to place the shape vertically.

*** Bug 107342 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The button works when you select 2 shapes, so the request here is to make it work also with a single shape, like in Impress.
I have the Writer part ready on gerrit:
(Not sure if I'll do also the Calc part.)
Maxim Monastirsky committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#90850 Enable align commands for a single shape in Writer
It will be available in 6.2.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
A polite ping to Maxim Monastirsky:
Is this bug fixed? if so, could you please close it as RESOLVED FIXED ? Otherwise, Could you please explain what's missing?

> Otherwise, Could you please explain what's missing?
Writer part is done, Calc part is still missing. But now I found that the Calc part is also reported in Bug 100394, so I think we can change this bug to Writer only, and close as RESOLVED FIXED.
