Description J22Gim 2018-01-19 15:21:05 UTC
Application colors don't seem to work as expected in DOCX files.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In "Application colors" (Tools->Options->LibreOffice->Application Colors), choose a color (eg grey, but can be anything but white) for the document background.
2. Open the DOCX file (try with the test DOCX file I uploaded)

Actual Results:  
In my screen I see the text background area as white (ie not the color chosen as document background in Application Colors)

Expected Results:
I would expect to see the background of the document in grey color (or whatever color you chose as Document Background) instead of white.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
It works well with ODT files (and maybe other formats).
I attach two files: the DOCX test and the PDF to check that it prints with correct colors.

Tried to reproduce.

Result: Background outside margins shows application colour; Background within margins is still white.

J22Gim, do you get the same result?

Dear J22Gim,

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 http://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

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

Warm Regards,
QA Team
