The Background fill information is not populated correctly into the Format-Paragraph Window
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set a non default background image as background and change some properties using the Format-Paragraph Window
2. Close it and apply it to paragraphs. Everything works fine.
3. Now reopen the edit paragraph formatiing window again for Custom Format described above.
4. Go to the Area-Fill Tab. The default fill properties setting are selected and activated, implying the saved prooperties are not correctly populated.
1. If the Format-Paragraph window is closed with the Area-Fill Tab open it reopens in the same tab in Step 4 and all fill poperties must be set again.
2. When modifying Fill parameters to adjust and find the right setting. Fill properties must be reset again.
The fill properties once set must be correctly repopulated into the Format-Editor Window.

The tab in the format editor window which resets everytime.
Wrong module - setting to Writer. "Base" in bugzilla refers to the database module.
This feature works fine on the Still Version 5.2.6. This bug has come up after the introduction of the upgraded Format Properties Window.
I think there were some fixes to the dialog recently. Could you try with 22.214.171.124?
I check this in the 5.4 released for bug hunting, and it still exists. This has become a hurdle and I had to shift back to the still version.

gradient, hatch and bitmap tab had the same issue, I've fixed the first two, bitmap is still pending
Katarina Behrens committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#107087: Select bitmap fill from preset list
It will be available in 5.5.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More

Checked on /daily/master/Win-x86_64@42/2017-06-10_01.17.34
Bug still unresolved. Behaviour changed a little bit though.
Steps to repeat new behaviour
1. Open new file.
2. Create new Paragraph format and give it a name.
3. Change the area fill setting to as shown in Image 1. (Load an external image not select a default one - This step is necessary to simulate a second buggy bahaviour) * Image_1: Paragraph Format Settings - Original Intended
4. Apply and Save settings close the window.
5. Reopen paragraph setting window by Right click > Modify
*The Style, Size and Position what was previously set is now changed to something different. This can be seen in image 2
*Image_2: Paragraph Style_Test_Settings_Window_Closed_and_Reopened
--> This is the first minor bug
6. For the second minor bug. > Save file > Close File and Reopen it.
7. Reopen paragraph setting window by Right click > Modify
8. In addition to the first minor bug the External loaded image is now not displayed in the list.
Image_3: Paragraph Style_Test_Settings_File_Closed_and_Reopened
The second bug which occurs when file is closed and reopened also exists in the Gradient and Hatching Tab as well. Shall i post the details here or shall I open a new bug for that? In both cases data is not lost and only the data from the file is not populated back to the window properly.
All the above Problems can be found in the Pattern tab as well.

That is bug #103916. It works if you save those presets in Format > Area tab, only there & nowhere else.
It's challenging to fix as one needs to tunnel certain data through 20 layers of abstraction, but hey, that's improved UX for you!

Just checked the behaviour in Still version. This is indeed a complex bug. I will have to check up the behaviour again in detail when I have time. If i may ask. Why isnt the same code used in both places?
There are various issues in the page background area, and it is necessary to distinguish strictly. There might be relations between those issues, but they seem to start with different versions and also some of them seem to have become fixed in between with different Target Milestones.
this one mixes some different problems. The original problem is concerning the effect that Format Page Dialog loses connection to imported picture, which is already reproducible with Version: 188.8.131.52 (x64)
CPU-Threads: 4; BS-Version: Windows 6.1; UI-Render: Standard;
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE).
But for example various screenshots show the problem that particular size and scaling settings will not be shown correctly after reopening Format Page Dialog from page contents view, and this is still ok with 184.108.40.206 (x64). So I think we should use this one as collection of materials for creation of new reports precisely describing a particular effect with clearly described appearance (and may be vanishing). Finding relations between those issues would be a second step.
This one is concerning "on board" and also imported (bitmap) pictures as page background.
11. Open Attachment 134433 [details]
12. Menu ‘format → Page → Background → Picture
Expected: Shows information related to actual imported background picture
(like OOo does and also LibO 220.127.116.11)
Actual: connection to actual imported picture lost, shows arbitrary (default)
values for size, position and so on: "Tiled", "176%"
Step 4 of original report demonstrates the problem, but is not necessary to provoke the issue, also reporter's screenshots of settings show this
a1) Already reproducible with Version 5.4.3
a2) Was still ok with Version: 18.104.22.168 (x64)
CPU-Threads: 4; BS-Version: Windows 6.1; UI-Render: Standard;
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE)
and also Version: 22.214.171.124,
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE), German language UI, normal User Profile
Argh, please ignore text starting with "This one is concerning "on board" ..." from comment above!
