MRU->CMC: In the referred cells, there seems to be something more... content,
which is located in other cells, has been copied to the cells containing the
rotated text when exported and opened in MS Word.

Comment 7 yoonkit 2006-02-06 07:41:24 UTC
This defect still persists in OOo2.0.

here's how to reproduce it:
1) create a frame, type some text
2) change the rotation to 270 degrees
3) save as MSOffice 97/XP
4) open the file in OOo, and the rotation defaults to 90 degrees.

I will include two files,
1) the original odt doc
2) the resultant MSOffice doc.

The difference is in frame (c) where the arrow should point Down.

In table rotated text 90 and 270 degree is not saved to MS word, is this
different issue from this?
Comment 12 michael.ruess 2007-08-10 10:21:55 UTC
It is different and tracked in issue 3692. Not a problem of the filter, but of
the core, which does not support it.
Comment 13 zynaps 2009-04-24 16:31:13 UTC
This acts quite strangely - there are some slightly different outcomes.
1. Create a new document
2. Create a single row, single column table
3. Add the text "Abc" in the one cell
4. Save as an MS Word 97/2000/XP document
5. Quit
6. Re-open the file
This results in a table with the text rotated _90_ degrees instead of 270. How/

In other circumstances, sometimes when setting the left margin of the table 
such that it doesn't take up the whole width of the page (i.e. a table on the 
right side of the page) there are stranger results.
I created (more than once) a multi-column table with 270 degree rotated text, 
dragged the left margin out so the table took up the right half of the screen, 
saved, quit and reloaded the file. The result was that text in the cells was 
merged (text from first three cells appended to the text of the first cells) 
and some columns are missing, or worse, the whole table is hidden offscreen 
with a right margin value of -143cm or so!
