huge cursor

Operate the button just to the left and right. In addition there is a huge cursor over the entire length of the vertical text. Let's see how you can navigate in the vertical text in a table in Microsoft Office 2003. Also see the screenshots.

1. New Writer document
2. Table - Insert table, OK
3. Right-click in table, Table properties
4. Text flow tab: Text orientation - vertical
5. Type stuff into the cell

Beluga,
I tried what you suggested. Works great, better than orientation via text settings. I got turned 90 degrees clockwise. But how do I get the rotate by 90 degrees counterclockwise?

Frankly, I don't know :)

But now that I tried another way to manipulate the orientation, it worked ok for me, too, without any huge cursor:
1. Right-click in the cell - Edit paragraph style (you should of course create a new style for a real document)
2. Position tab - Rotation / Scaling - 90 or 270 degrees

Let me know, if you get good results and we can close this report.

I did notice that manipulating paragraph style + position vs. table properties aligns the vertical text to the opposite sides of the cell. With position, it is at the left side.

Try your advise, good. But is some issues.

Ok, your video had reproduction steps for the big cursor.

After rotating the text with Edit paragraph style, write some text and press the Home key.

It is interesting that this does not happen, if you rotate the text from the Table properties - Text flow.

I changed this to be about the huge cursor, you should create a separate issue for the navigation keys.

I did some searches and there doesn't seem to be a report for that yet.

Sorry, I made mistake. I used Table Properties - works fine. If use Character Style the problem still is.
