Can you please explain how you create a text box in Writer, that you can
rotate? Did you do that via copy/paste with Draw?

Click on the 'T'|write something|exit the textbox&  reselect&
right-click|Position and Size|Rotation|Rotation angle|180°

Ah,indeed Drawing involved ;-) Thanks for this pointer.

I can't replicate in 3.3.3 or 3.4.1 (linux).

Same for me on a daily build (*): works fine.
Unless, of course, I save as .doc ;-) Then indeed 180 is 90 after 
opening again.

Must be a know issue from OOo - remember I've seen it years ago already.

It appears to be an issue with the 'Save/Export' routine.
I have WinXP & MS Office 2002 on a virtual machine. I copied the saved
.doc file to that machine and in MS Word it opens at 90 instead of 180.
Searching bugzilla finds a lot of text box issues, but not this one. If
I get some time later today I'll file a bug report.
