Rotating x-axis text in a Calc chart

Hi. I would like to rotate the text of the legend in the x-axis of a chart I’m trying to build with calc. The problem is that it doesn’t work. Even if I rotate the text by using Format → X-axis → text rotation, the chart doesn’t change. It works on the y-axis instead. Here’s a screenshot.

What can I do? Thank you in advance

Ciao Luigi, works for me.

Thank you for your answer. Same settings, but no results for me. I’ve noticed that when I change the orientation and click on “ok”, there’s a nearly imperceptible movement. I’ve read somewhere that to have a 90 degrees rotation, I should write a 9000 value.

90 degrees works for me, try resetting the user profile, sometimes solves strange issues.
Please what is your LibreOffice version and Operating System?

Hi Mario. I’ve decided to re-install LibreOffice 4.1 and now it works perfectly! Anyway, the version of LO is: Version: and the OS is: Linux Mint 13 ‘Maya’. Thank you anyway! :slight_smile:
