Description maand 2009-01-13 21:14:27 UTC
If I create a slide with the layout picture and text in version 2.x of OOo, I
was able to align the text with bullets vertical centered. This is needed to fit
the text (if there are only few entries) to the graphic (i.e on the left side).
I explained this in my Howto (page 15/16)
or the english version: (page 14/15).
In the last days I tried to update my howto to OOo 3.0 and had to realize that
this feature doesn't exist anymore. I discussed it on the IRC with a developer
and heard that the feature lives in the code but was disabled (I don't remember
correcty if only in the context menu /UI or also in the code.).
I think this feature should enabled in OOo3.1 again.

Reproducible. Reassigned. Entry in context menu is missing.

Sorry about the duplicate.

Just to be clear, there is no "Text" item in the context menu for layout objects
in both 2.x and 3.x.

However, there is a "Text" entry in the main menu (under Format) in 2.x. This
entry is disabled in 3.x.

Is there a fix/patch for this for 3.1 on WinXP? 
Comment 5 groucho266 2009-09-25 10:40:31 UTC
Setting target to OOo 3.3.
Comment 6 groucho266 2010-07-14 08:21:32 UTC
Changing target.

@cl: I think this is more your area of expertise.
Comment 8 clippka 2011-04-04 14:32:31 UTC
fixed in cws impress212 for OOo 3.4

I did not add a context menu, this was never there and is no regression. It may be a good idea to add it but it is to late for a ui fix.

Format->Text menu no works again for title and outline shapes.
