Hi,yes, I have done that before, because I prefer Libreoffice to Word, I use it at home, too, but I end up in doing this kind of work in Word at work. At home I use a OOo plug in that allows me to rotate pictures, but even that I am not allowed to install at work (only applications that are testet and approved by our computer centre are allowed, and they work for hundrets of banks, so if only a few people demand for a certain program(part) to be approved it can last years till something happens.
To answer in short:I have already done this with draw, but due to my lazines I end up doing the dokuments in Word, as it is quicker and I need only one application.

Hi Alexander Thanks for your input that I find very down to earth and practical.I am just curious, as you seem quite interested in LibreOffice, just as an exercise, would it be possible for you to take a document where you had to rotate an barcode and use Draw to rotate it and then insert the rotated image into the LibreOffice document?I would be interested in your comments on the process, just to see how we could streamline the process for LibreOffice.I believe this could be added to the bug/feature request and that it could add a more realistic "every-day application" of the rotation of a graphic.Cheers Marc Le 2011-05-01 08:33, Alexander Ostuni a écrit :Hi, yes, I could. But with MS Word I am simply quicker than use an extra application just for rotate the barcode... and time is money.....

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. Iget 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.If you have LibO on your computer, why don't you use then Draw to rotate the barcode? Sure, it is more convenient to have that feature in Writer, but Draw is the specialised component for drawings and it has a lot more functions and capabilities, that you could ever built into a text processing component.
