As far as I know, LibreOffice does not allow this feature. Thus, I will have
to flip my figure in the Photo Viewer,
save it and open it in Libreoffice. My figure will then become flipped in
the LibreOffice page.
The question now is how do I adjust my caption to remain just above the
Unbelievable! That's one of the most common things to do with a picture,
isn't it? You can easily do it in Draw and then copy it into Writer, but
that's also an extra step.
Why does a word processor needs the capabilities of an image editing program?
I wonder why things behave differently in different pieces of the suite.
They talk about how great it is with object oriented programming and
that everything so easily can be made to behave the same way everywhere
and things like that. What happened to that? Seems like they tried to
invent the wheel at least twice here…
They behave differently because they are indeed different. The picture inserted in Writer is a GraphicObject (a SwXTextGraphicObject) and the picture copied from Draw is a Shape (a SwXShape).
They are designed to behave different. With a GraphicObject you get: ImageMap, Contour, Graphic Style. With a Shape you get rotation and shearing.
If Writer just inherited all Draw stuff, then they could drop Draw
completely, couldn't they?
A Writer-document has an associated drawing page, where all the drawing objects lay. But that is not the essential part of a Writer-Document. And the GraphicObject does not belong to the drawing page.
Because a GraphicObject is very different from a Shape rotation needs to be implemented separately. LO does not have its own issue for it, in OOo it is the enhancement request
Is it really to much effort to use an image editing program to rotate the picture before inserting it in the Writer document?
