picture or text box

Patrick Crocker
Is there a way to rotate as opposed to flip a picture or text box using
openoffice write?  Looking to rotate these frames 90 degrees.

Thanks

please note that this is the mailing for the developers of OpenOffice.
For your user-oriented question please see the users mailing list [1].

How to rotate a text box:

- Select the text box, so that you have the cyan colored handles
   around it
- Click the right mouse button on the box and select "Position and Size"
- In the upcoming dialog choose the tab "Rotation"
- You have to play a bit with the "Rotation angle" settings depending
   on what you want

In Writer it's not possible to rotate an inserted picture. But you can
insert it in a Draw document and copy the rotated picture back into the
Writer doc.
