So, essentially, you are saying it is easy as long as one is using square images
but not otherwise?
So, no I don't know, but Michael came up with this at the call ... I am
certainly not technical enough to answer that. What works however is rotating
something in Impress/Draw and then copying the image over – so I guess there is
a rotation property somewhere, no..? (Or is that the transformation matrices you
were talking about?)
