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.
