Description Ramil 2015-06-09 09:49:15 UTC
In Calc to go to a new line when filling the cells need to use Ctrl+Enter in Writer when horizontally oriented text is used just Enter, and if vertical need to use Shift+Enter. It's confusing, most people cannot understand this intuitively, and they have to search the Internet how to go onto a new line in the vertically oriented text in a table in Writer. I think it would be appropriate everywhere to make the transition to a new line in a table cell in Writer and in Сalc using Ctrl+Enter and Enter the transition in the cell below, as in Calc.

For me, Enter in a Writer table inserts a new line in the cell, no need to use Shift-Enter.

Eh.. I meant when orientation is vertical.

Try Character - Position - Rotate.
Comment 5 Buovjaga 2015-06-25 13:31:32 UTC
Ok, rotation through character & paragraph styles/formatting only accepts line breaks (shift-enter), but not paragraph breaks (enter).

Table properties - Text flow rotation does not have this problem.

MS Word 2013 doesn't have text rotation separately.
In a table cell, right-clicking gives you a menu item Text direction. A pop-up opens and you can select 90, 0 or 270 degrees. Paragraph breaks work ok in MS Word.

I don't see why. More a dupe of Bug 34436. Or it's all the same with a good new summary.

Oh, I didn't notice bug 34436. I marked it as duplicate of bug 75456 because it's assigned although I don't know if there's any progress there...
