Description Leigh Bowden 2016-12-11 18:54:32 UTC
This is my CV/resume so I'd like it kept confidential please. The small circles on the first page have a slight white-ish "shadows". These circle objects are part of LibreOffice clip art library. These objects in the pick list don't appear to have these shadows at all and wouldn't show if the background was left white. 

In my instance I have a pale blue background and the shadow is slightly noticeable within draw but it's not overly intrusive. 

The problem comes when I export the odg to a pdf either using the built-in exporter or the Microsoft PDF "printer". The output has over emphasized the above shadows to being highly intrusive to the extent some of the text in them becomes difficult to read.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load odg file.
2.Export as pdf.

Actual Results:  
As above really. If there's an option within the pdf export that could tone this down abit.

Expected Results:
I was expecting the pdf output to match what I'm seeing within draw. WYSIWYG it aint!

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No. This is pretty much a clean install.

Additional Info:
This happens on on a two different systems one is Windows 7.1 Starter and the other is Windows 10. The odg is the same as it resides on my server.

Leigh: please create a minimal example ODG, which shows the problem, no confidential information and is under 10MB.

Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the document.

Dear Leigh Bowden,

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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
