could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version. You can copy and paste the informations you can find at Help => About LibreOffice
ruiz: do you know, if .doc format supports highlight other than yellow? Please link to some proof.
Same as bug 98944. Quote:
This thing happens because MS highlighting has only 15 highlighting color and when you save Writer text background \ highlighting to an MS format it is converted to this color palette.
It's the default behavior, but you can change this at Tools -> Option -> Load/Save -> Microsoft Office, to save Writer text background as MS Shading and so colors won't change. Nut in this case when you open that *.doc file in MS Word you could not change the text background with highlighting tool, but with the shading tool:
Before the 5.0 version sometimes we saved Writer text background as shading (doc, docx), sometimes as highlighting (rtf). From that version an option is added, so the user can select the preferred behavior. Highlighting became the default, because on LO UI text background is called highlighting. This option can be set also via user profile.
