In the bottom left cell (which is, of course the top left cell when
it is rotated for viewing), I wanted to place a series of lines
(i.e. paragraphs) with translations of the key elements in the
image. I have done this in earlier documents using MS-Word, but
there doesn't seem to be any way of accomplishing this in Writer.
The key here is that there are multiple paragraphs in the cell. If I
use character styles, all of the lines/paragraphs are run together
and, actually are placed in the opposite order. No amount of
fiddling seems to cure this.
Since I can't believe that Word can do this easily but Libre
apparently can't do it at all, I suspect I'm just looking in all the
wrong places, so can anyone tell me how to accomplish this?
o Go to View | Toolbars > | Drawing.
o Click Text ("T") in the Drawing toolbar and drag a text object in
your table cell. You may need to anchor it As Character to keep it
in the cell.
o Insert your text.
o Right-click the text object and select Position and Size... |
Rotation | Rotation angle.
o Set Angle to 90 degrees.
I trust this helps.
