Description Eduardo Sanchez 2016-11-19 22:36:11 UTC
WHen selecting a figure from the drawing toolbar, this is drawn with the default line color (usually Tango Sky Blue 2).

Sometimes, when the user right clicks on the figure and selects "Line...", and changes the color, sometimes this is ineffective. If the user selects black, for example, the line color will remain Tango Sky Blue 2 no matter what.

I was able to work around this by selecting Tango Sky Blue as color first, and only then selecting Black.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Draw some figure with the Drawing toolbar.
2. Right Click on the figure; choose "Line..."
3. Change the color to Black.

Actual Results:  
Most of the time, nothing happens. The line color of the figure will remain in the default color.

Expected Results:
Line color should change to the user-specified color at all times.

Reproducible: Sometimes

User Profile Reset: No

I drew a rectangle and it worked.

Not reproducible for me with LO 5.4.1 under Ubuntu 16.04 x86-64.

Eduardo: are you seeing this still with version 5.4? For convenience, you can test with AppImages: http://libreoffice.soluzioniopen.com/

Change back to UNCONFIRMED, if the problem persists. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.
