orientating a right-angled triangle.

I feel as if I must be being incredibly stupid, but I'm trying to draw a
right-angled triangle in LibreOffice Writer, and I can't get one the way
round I want.

I want one with the right angle at bottom right, a short side rising
from the right-angle, and the hypotenuse sloping down from right to left.

If I click and drag left, the height is at the left. But so it is, if I
drag right! I've been into what right-click offers, and there are two
different controls there, but I still can't find a way to achieve what I
want !

Help !

Good evening Ian,

please do not despair.

Draw your triangle, yes it is wrong.

Leave it marked.

In the sidebar (Ctrl+F5), for Properties>Position and


Via Position and Size you can also specify the width and height.

Kind regards

Thank you both, Michael D Seltzer and Harald Berger.
