Description imwithid 2010-05-28 08:21:33 UTC
It has been mentioned on many sites that formatting text vertically in 
OpenOffice is complicated and in some cases not practical or sufficient a 
method (unless one has the programming ability to accomplish such a task). It 
seems unnecessary to have to create a frame, anchor it to the page, resize it 
and then align the frame centered vertically. Other problems that come into 
play are when more than one column is needed. Often a column break does not 
properly work and the contents of one column end up in the other (requiring a 
hard break to balance out both since the contents within the frame cannot be 
aligned vertically - back to the original problem).

Have I missed something? I have searched for this feature and have not found it 
reported as a bug or missing feature (MS Word and Lotus WordPro both have this 
feature - note Lotus WordPro has been a near dead project for almost a decade).
