1) Open attachment 126147 [details]
2) Right-click on shape and click Area in context menu
3) Notice that the custom bitmap appears in the preview, but there isnt an entry in the bitmap presets list for the custom bitmap

It doesn't even appear in the preview in
Comment 3 Aron Budea 2017-01-08 18:50:52 UTC
My bad this was for the old dialog... so it doesn't work correctly with the new one, either.
Comment 4 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2017-01-12 09:37:19 UTC
Thinking about this more, it shouldnt appear in the presets list as it isnt a presets. @Heiko: Whats your take?

Please file a separate bug for that :D

Those bitmaps go into the gallery (as when done per drag 'n drop) and remain there forever. Not the best workflow anyway.

The problem still exists in Version: (x64)

Now the first of the preset is selected and there is no change to alter anything, e.g. the type (original, stretch, tiled), for the existing bitmap filling.

For Bitmap (and Gradient, Hatch and Pattern) there should exists a selection "used in this document", similar as the "Document colors" for colors.

Dear Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired),

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
