So the gradient tab of the area dialog has a field labelled 'border' which according to the help is to 'Enter the amount by which you want to adjust the area of the endpoint color on the gradient. The endpoint color is the color that is selected in the To box'. ODF has this feature in the draw:border attribute, which is why it must be labelled like this, but users wont be able to understand it, so i'd like to get input on what we can use instead.

From what i can visually see, this value sets where along the gradient fill path the start/from color will begin transitioning to the end/to color. So maybe 'Transition point' would be good.

"Transition point" sounds good to me (not making it clearer to the user, though). Any objection from the l10n team, Sophie, or documentation, Olivier? 

If not I guess you can patch yourself :-).

Just checked Indesign (https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/gradients.html) who call it 'midpoint', maybe it's more easy to understand than 'transition'? I'm not sure but both are ok for me anyway :) - thanks for your work Jay! Sophie

Or just "Offset" like GIMP.

Measured by color picker in a figure with a gradient applied, the border is the line where the transition starts. Before the border line, the color is constant.

So maybe 
"Transition start line", 
"transition begin line" 
"start of (color) transition"

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 http://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
