Re: [tdf-discuss] Two simple writer annoyances


Yes, it is build to produce Dokuments and because of that I need to rotate a picture. I work in a bank. We have restrictions on the installed programms. I am not allowed to install any application that can rotate pictures. I have to create our formulars/documents. Each of them has a barcode. I get the barcodes horizontally but need them vertically in the formulars/dokuments. In MS word I can rotate them, in LO (wich is allowed in our bank and also the software we shall use over Word) not, so I can't use LO but have to use Word.

So,a big yes. I need that function, too.

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

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
