- Implement rotation of images in Writer to any angle tdf#73797 (Armin Le Grand, CIB)
This long requested feature (there are 20 year old reports) could now be implemented. It supports rotating Writer FlyFrames (e.g. inserted Graphics) freely around their center. UI elements to support this were added in various places (Dialog, Sidebar). Direct setting of rotation is extended to allow simple reset ('Reset Rotation'). A 'rotate' interactive mode was added to allow the same interactions as when Draw-Objects are selected. The interactive Cropping was adapted to work with rotated graphics (WYSIWIG). When a frame is used, it gets 'expanded' to the bounding rectangle of the rotated graphic (a feature to allow rotating with the Object is planned for the future). The text can wrap around a rotated Image using the existing 'Contour' feature ('Edit Contour') adding a whole rectangle covering the Image using the Contour-Editor (a single action, e.g. a Button, to do this in one step may be implemented to make this more accessible to the user). The following picture shows examples of this feature in action.

“Grammar By” spell checking
User dictionaries allow automatic affixation or compounding, supporting effective editing and technical dictionary creation in several languages. tdf#113739 (László Németh)
This is a general spell checking improvement of LibreOffice, but it can speed up especially the work of Writer users. Instead of manual handling of hundreds of correct word forms of a new word in a language with rich morphology or compounding, Hunspell spell checker will recognize the new user dictionary word with affixes or in compounds, too, based on a “Grammar By” model word. Screencasts about the usage: English, German.
For (a simplified English) example, on the following screen shot of the “Edit custom dictionary” window, the word “crowdfund” is the new word (missing from the American English dictionary), and “fund” is the model word in the new “Grammar By” field (this more common word is part of the Hunspell spell checking dictionary). This way, the new word “crowdfund” will be recognized with suffixes of the word “fund” automatically, too: crowdfund’s, crowdfunds, crowdfunder, crowdfunders and crowdfunding.
With “Grammar By” spell checking, it will be possible to create and handle technical dictionaries more easily, using existing user interface of custom dictionaries to switch on/off them, for example, medical, technological or other scientific dictionaries shipped with LibreOffice.
Note: this feature works only in language-dependent user dictionaries, so it needs to create one or modify the language of an existing one.
Using “Grammar By” field can help a language with simple morphology, too. The word forms of “emoji” show the original work of the user dictionaries. New automatic suffixation of the other English user words allows the recognition of 5 times more correct word forms: crowdfund, crowdfunds, crowdfund's, crowdfunder, crowdfunders, crowdfunding, hackerspace, hackerspaces, hackerspace’s, hackerspacing etc. But in a language with rich compounding, like German, or in an agglutinative language, like Hungarian (where a new word can have million different correct word forms: thousands of different suffixes multiplied by thousands of compound word forms), only using “Grammar By” feature can achieve effective user dictionaries creation and editing.
German example: adding the known root word “Gummi”, as a model to the new word “Litschi” (lychee), other word forms of the new word are also recognized by the spell checker: Litschis (lychees), Litschibaum (lychee tree), Litschibäume (lychee trees), Litschibaumes, Litschifrucht, Litschifrüchte, Litschisaft, Litschisamen, Litschischale, Litschipflaume etc.
- Pivot table interop fixes (Mike Kaganski (Collabora), Tamás Zolnai (Collabora), Bartosz Kosiorek)
- Default 2-entry color scale conditional formatting colors changed to Yellow and Green. tdf#86508 (Yousuf Philips)
- Enhanced "Links" dialog tdf#113807 (Serge Krot, CIB)
- Number format: accept English syntax keywords; some languages use localized keywords (AAAA for YYYY in French for instance). Now these languages can use English keywords to get valid format in any UI language tdf#33689 (Laurent Balland-Poirier)
- The main menu (top level) now has an entry “Styles” tdf#91820 (Yousuf Philips)
- A cell range selection or a selected group of shapes (images) can be exported to PNG or JPG graphics format with tdf#108317 (Eike Rathke (Red Hat, Inc.)) ▸ if the Selection checkbox is marked in the file dialog.
Pasting: unformatted text
- The text/plain Unformatted text format results in unquoted/unescaped content as expected for external pastes. For single cell copy&paste embedded line breaks and tabs are preserved, for multiple cells they are replaced with spaces, effectively being a tab-separated-values (TSV) format. For intra-Calc on-cell pastes using the paste special toolbar button the Unformatted text [TSV-Calc] format can be used, which preserves embedded line breaks and tabs across multiple cells. tdf#113571 tdf#32213 (Eike Rathke (Red Hat, Inc.))
- Added "Paste unformatted text" command
