How can I rotate a graphic with a given angle?

Up to version 1.x, Writer doesn't contain a rotation facility for graphics. To be able to rotate graphics one needs to use Draw:

  • In your Writer file, select the graphic you want to rotate and copy it.
  • Open a Draw window and paste your graphic into the draw file.
  • Righ-tclick onto the graphic, select "Position and Size"
  • Select "Rotation" and rotate according to your needs.
  • Select your graphic after it has been rotated and copy it.
  • Go back to Writer and paste the rotated graphic into your file.
