How can I rotate a graphic with a given angle?



Up to version 2.x, Writer doesn't contain a rotation facility for graphics. To rotate graphics, you need to use Draw:

  1. In your Writer file, select the graphic you want to rotate and copy it.
  2. Open a Draw window and paste your graphic into the Draw file.
  3. Right-click on the graphic, select "Position and Size".
  4. Select "Rotation" and rotate according to your needs.
  5. Select your graphic after it has been rotated and copy it.
  6. Go back to Writer and paste the rotated graphic into your file.
