[tdf-discuss] Re: Two simple writer annoyances

Over 20 years ago I used Impression Publisher and it could rotate graphics

You are confusing programs: a Word Processor (such as LibreOffice Writer) is
not a Desktop Publishing software.

I suggest that you use the FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software) Desktop
Publisher named Scribus

I think the point being made here is that 20 years ago, a desktop publishing suite could rotate graphics and that you would imagine, with 20 years of development, the rotation of graphics would be achievable in a wordprocessing suite.

I tend to agree, if we are going to have any useful base line manipulation of graphics in LibreOffice, the rotation of graphics should be one of these abilities. This could also be a way of having our wordprocessing suite distinguishing itself from any other suites.

This ability could be well suggested as a feature request on bugzilla. We have many talented devs who may want to pick up this challenge.
