Description Mikhail Novosyolov 2016-12-08 06:50:04 UTC
Created attachment 129385 [details]

The document was created in Microsoft Office Word, when openning in Libreoffice, text effects (shadows) are not applied. 

The font Monotype Corsiva is used.

Yes, the document is formatted very ugly, but it was not I who made it.

Not sure, what I should set as the earliest version, as 3.3 and 3.6 do not even show the shapes.

This shape is actually a canvas, which is imported as a grouped shape. 
But inside it really is just a character level mirroring effect in several textboxes. See bug #123941 about that.

But we should keep this one open as a reminder to bring that feature to grouped shapes which would be an extra mile even after the plain text implements mirroring effect.

Dear Mikhail Novosyolov,

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

Warm Regards,
QA Team
