When rotating an image, the mask does not rotate with it.

However, the terms in LibreOffice is "Contour" not mask, and there is a tool "Edit Contour" provided to make adjustments when the text is being wrapped to an image. With the editor open an "Auto Contour" button is provided that will correctly morph the contour, aka. mask.
Issue is that when Contour mode Wrap is active, the contour is not being "auto" adjusted as the image is rotated in its 90 deg increments.
Work on bug 34423 got us only part way, we are able to rotate raw bitmaps--and those at 90 deg increments.
Is correcting the Auto Contour piece worth pursuing, alone? But, perhaps in context of adding rotation for other image formats (EMF/WMF and SVG), and achieving full range of rotation angles as Draw now supports?

ODF document with image in Contour Wrap mode
rotate the image (VLC cone stretched), the Contour Wrap mode does not adjust. Use image context menu Wrap -> Edit Contour and select "Auto Contour" to adjust to 90 deg rotation.
If in Contour Wrap mode, contour mask should follow rotation.

Thank you. You can also turn Contour off and back on, but you should not need the world around.

I think that would be a HUGE step forward.
Yes, sure.. it is expected that the mask rotates with the image.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice
(5.4.1 or 5.3.6 https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave
a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
With implementing the feature, to rotate a Writer image by an arbitrary angle, it is fixed.
