I need an alternative way to replace tables and rotate pic's in writer(with a handle) Instead of 'cut' and 'paste'

is there way to move tables using a handle just like MS office instead of ‘cut’ and ‘paste’
this way is more flexible and comfortable and more user frindly1
if there is not such way,is there any plan to add this feature for table?
also a handle to rotate picture and graphics!
this is an important feature!!!

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:


<OpenOffice.org-minimal-version value="3.3" dep:name="OpenOffice.org 3.3"/>
<OpenOffice.org-maximal-version value="3.3" dep:name="OpenOffice.org 3.3"/>

for example change to

<OpenOffice.org-minimal-version value="3.3" dep:name="OpenOffice.org 3.3"/>
<OpenOffice.org-maximal-version value="10.3" dep:name="OpenOffice.org 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 Openoffice.org 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):

OpenOffice.org-minimal-version value="2.3"

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