Hello all,

As my message appears to have become lost, I am asking again.

I need some help figuring out how to format text on a line.

Is it possible to have text horizontal while the line drawn is at an angle? If yes, how?

More details below.

Using LO 7.6 Draw on Mac.

I have a chart with many text boxes that have text centred inside. The boxes have an outline.

To show "flow" from one box to the next I have joined the boxes with lines with arrows.

When you double click the arrow line you can add text to the arrow line object. This is great however the text for the line object ends up aligned ALONG the line. So if the line is at 45 deg, the text is at 45 deg.

To make the text easier to read the text, I'd like the text to be at aligned in the reading direction ie. horizontal Something like my line art diagram below


Is this is even possible? If yes, where is the formatting command? If no, I'll add an enhancement request.

Thanks in advance.

PS I'm on digest mode. Please reply to list and cc me directly
