Description Joe Smith 2016-03-15 19:36:19 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1) File > New > Drawing

2) Create a new polygon using the Curve tool palette/Polygon tool

3) Add a text label: double-click & type

4) Rotate the object: Format > Position & Size > Rotation: 40 (or whatever)

Note that the text label is rotated along with the polygon

5) File > Save

6) File > Reload ...

Note that the text label is no longer rotated.

Check the object's rotation (Format > Position & Size > Rotation) is now zero.

It appears that the transformation stored in the file has been applied to the object points and then discarded: the object points are in the correct positions but the object's label is not rotated. Saving the file again leads to completely loss of the transformation data.

I've checked AOO versions 4.1.2, 4.1.1 and 4.0.1 and all show the same problem.

Libreoffice 5.x does not show the same problem: the transform is loaded, the label is correctly rotated along with the polygon, and the transform is stored properly with the next save.
