--- Comment #1 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
Shape objects in Writer and Calc are already exposed to a Rotate
.uno:ToggleObjectRotateMode action on the Drawing Object Properties toolbar. 

That is the same action as present in Draw on the Standard toolbar as default
for the Effects group button. And in Impress on the Drawing toolbar.

It would be reasonable UI to provide similar mouse click toggle of the rotation
mode for Writer and Calc shape objects.  In addition to mouse movement of a
selected object handle, <Ctrl>+<Tab>/<Ctrl>+<Shift>+<Tab> to move between the
object handles, and cursor key movements already correctly perform the rotation
once you reach rotation mode.

Additionally, Rotation is such a common action--it would be useful if a global
shortcut could be implemented that would either toggle into objects rotate
mode, or as in case of Image inserted into Writer offer a dialog of 90 deg
rotation button actions.
