What about handles on tables I think it's really necessary feature. It must be in TOP 10 feature request.

manj_k, thanks for link to WriterRotationTool. But by default this addon works only with OO 3.3. To make addon works in LO 4.x file description.xml must be modified:


< value="3.3" dep:name=" 3.3"/>
< value="3.3" dep:name=" 3.3"/>

for example change to

< value="3.3" dep:name=" 3.3"/>
< value="10.3" dep:name=" 10.3"/>

@Sergey_Aka – (1) I suppose that you are referring to version 1.0.2.

"The version 1.0.2 is a workaround for the bug #116585 which affects both and LibreOffice 3.3.x. For any other releases (≤3.2.x or ≥3.4.x), we recommend to use the version 1.0.0 of the extension."

@Sergey_Aka – (2) Version 1.0.0 works fine for me in LibreOffice 3.6.6 / 4.0.3.

There's only a minimal-version value in description.xml (excerpt): value="2.3"
