Description dr0800 2008-06-01 22:11:02 UTC
In Impress open a new file (or open an existing one) go to the Master-View,
select a placeholder for text and try to select the menu-option "Text" from the
menu "Format". It won't work because it's not active (greyed). Consequence: you
can't change the alignment of the text (i.e. "top", "middle", "bottom").

Workaround: you can use the "alignment"-entry of the context menu.
Reproducible. Reassigned.

In the context menu the needed option "Text" is missing (like in OOo2.4) only
for placeholders. With self-created text-boxes everything works fine. As I use
the german version I don't know how to call it right, but I'm after the function
which allows you to align the text of the title-placeholder to the bottom or to
the top of the placeholder. Not left, right, center or block. (sorry for my
lousy explanation - I use a german version)

Actually I did an install of the english version of OOo 3b2 to get the right
words for it..

Open a new presentation, select 'Title slide' and then select the title text
(you must see the green boxes at the edges). If you now like to align the text
of the title text box to the bottom or to the top (default is center), you may
try right click and look for the entry 'Text...' but there isn' one. Then you
may look at the menu 'Format' and search for the entry 'Text...' and you are
successful but unfortunately it is greyed so you can't select it. 

Today it is impossible to change the alignment of the text in the title text
box. But if I import an PowerPoint file with a text align to the bottom,
everything is fine except the issue that I can't change the alignment anyway.

The 'Alignment...'-entry of the context menu aligns the whole box in relation to
the whole slide. So if I change alignment to 'bottom' the box aligns correctly
at the bottom of the slide. This is not what I'm after..
