LibreOffice Writer Version 126.96.36.199 en_GB.
OS: Fedora 20 Linux.
I have a docx file that was created using MS Office in Windows. it includes a table where some of the column headings (columns 2-5) have their text rotated by 90deg into a vertical rather than horizontal format (ie. text can be read in portrait mode rather than native landscape mode), not that that characters are vertically stacked.
In this first image, the cursor is in “column 6” of the table which is aligned “normally” - The action icons are also “normal” in their appearance.
In the next image, the cursor is in the “column 5” text. Note that the action icons are also rotated so that their actions are in context with the text alignment.
In this final image I’ve rotated the text using “Format Cell” and changed the text rotation for “column 6”. Although the text appears similar to the other vertical columns (columns 2-5), the action icons remain in their normal, unrotated sense.
How can I rotate the text in column 6 so that the action icons also act in the same context as the rotated text, like that in columns 2-5? It seems as though MS Office rotates the whole cell and changes the reference edge of the cell from the left hand side to the top. That’s what I’d like to do if this is possible, but how?!
Thanks in advance.
