Description simonbr 2006-05-19 09:50:28 UTC

I wanted to rotate an image in a Writer document, (Dutch OOo 2.0.2). But the
context menu for an image does not have a Position and Size entry. The Format -
Object - Position and Size menu exists, but it is greyed out when an image is

In contrast, in Draw the Position and Size dialog for an image can be accessed
from both the context menu and the menu bar. This is how it should be in Writer
as well. For the time being, a workaround is to copy the image to Draw, rotate
it, and copy it back into the Writer document.

By the way, I also noticed that when an image is selected, the Edit - Object
menu is not greyed out, but its submenus won't open either. This is also the
case in Draw.

On second thought, rotating the image in draw and copying it into Writer is not
a very good workaround because colour adjustment and cropping of the pasted
image become disabled.

It is the same as issue 21499.
Graphics in Writer are handled like frames, not like drawing objects. This is
planned to be unified in a future version.
