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

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.



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.


Good point. I'm probably just out of the habit of using Draw because I find
Inkscape better for me in many ways.  On the other hand, being able to right
click on an image and rotate it situ is a bit more elegant than having to
OLE to Draw just for a simple change in position, size or orientation.
Personally I think you should be able to adjust size and position in situ
and just go to Draw if you need to edit. Just seems better ergonomics. The
case of the barcode shows that going to Draw is probably not intutitive for
most users and that is also quite an important consideration.
