I need to orient text upside-down while making seed-bags. My data with pics are in Base

In base-report you can't turn 180? 90 deg would do IF text wouldn't automaticly be centred. You can edit the final report and set the text-block to be left /right oriented but not in the report-mall.

Edit: I need only to rotate the text on the lower part as it is the back of the bag Win 7 /64 bit LibO 5.1.3.2

You can rotate text 90 or 270 but not 180. On properties for the text box choose the ellipsis at end of Font. Under the Position tab is Rotation/Scaling. Make you choice there. Back on the text box properties, choose the positioning of the text using the Horiz. & Vert. Alignment properties.

Thanks for the answer. I tried 90 deg but the text will be centred despite positioning horizontal and vertical alignment to left/right, top/bottom. Is there no way of getting 180 deg?

Unfortunately I don't see anything for 180 degree. I probably don't comprehend your meaning of centered, but I included in my original answer images of text alignment Vertical Top & Bottom.

It appears that it may be a bug. It only occurs on multi-line text at 90 or 270 degree rotation.
