How does one wrap text in a rectangle with variable corner radius?

LibreOffice 6.0 - I have chosen to use “Legacy Rectangles” because I want to set the corner radius of the corner. unfortunately in doing so, it does not appear that I can “wrap text in object.” How do I get a rectangle that I can manually enter a corner radius size to wrap text? If this i snot possible, I would like to open a bug as this should be possible.

  • Create a rectangle with rounded corners (choose menu Insert - Shape - Basic Shapes - Rectangle, Rounded, drag to draw; also can use the Basic Shapes icon on the Drawing toolbar).
  • Adjust the corner radius:
  • Drag the circular control point at the upper left corner of the rectangle, or
  • Choose menu Format - Object and Shape - Position and Size (the same that F4) - Slant & Corner Radius tab, change the X value or Control Point 1, and OK.
  • Convert shape to curve: choose menu Format - Convert - To Curve.
  • Add text to the shape.
  • Choose menu Format - Object and Shape - Text… - Text tab, check Adjust to contour, and OK.
