Ian ,
No , we can not rotate a picture in LO , but LO is not our favorite
application to handle our pictures and graphics. LO is build to produce
documents, pictures are taken by camera and for correcting and rotating this
pictures we can uses hundreds off different and specialised free and open)
Applications.


But you could say you could prepare text in a text editor and just import it
so no need for text tools. All I was pointing out was that I used a document
processor over 20 years ago that could rotate, pan, scale, crop graphics etc
in situation. All of those things are useful to be able to do without having
to go back to a different application. Granted, it's not a big issue for me,
just an observation.

BTW: use the "wrap" and "contours" to let  flow text around irregular shaped
objects in LO


But not in 2 meg of RAM and a 30 MHz processor :-)

 Hi,

I think there are two annoyances in writer that should not be that hard
to
fix. I hope someone can fix these:

1. Why can't writer have image descriptions ABOVE the image as well? It
can
do it with tables, but with images, image captions have to be below the
image...

2. Why can't writer have the possibility to rotate an image...

 Over 20 years ago I used Impression Publisher and it could rotate
graphics
and IIRC flow text around irregular shaped objects. And that was on a
computer with 2 meg of RAM, no hard drive and basically the same ARM
processor as a modern day Smartphone but running at 30 MHz. It could be
argued that few people need these or they are more appropriate to a DTP
program? I use Inkscape and GIMP now for most image preparation, then
import
the final product into Writer if it needs to go into a WP. More often than
not though it goes straight onto a web page.


 thanx and keep up the good work!

regards,
Berhard
