Description Mark Hung 2018-02-09 17:37:15 UTC
Insert text shapes from the gallery. I expect that the shapes are made up of simple geometry, gradients, and colours. But they are made up of stripes. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert a text shape from the gallery.
2. Select the shape and select "break" from the context menu.
3. Use mouse to select a certain area inside the shape, you can see stripes that compose of the shape are selected.

Actual Results:  
Text shapes are composed of samllstripes.

Expected Results:
Text shapes should be made up of simpler geometries.

Reproducible: Always

The shapes you present are composed of slices because that is a trick to make a colour gradient. Check the colour values of the slices and you see they are different.

I guess if you could reproduce the exact gradient with LibreOffice's internal gradient engine it would be fine? But the question is, can you?
Comment 3 Heiko Tietze 2018-03-21 06:27:25 UTC
SVGs are loaded properly but the gradients are split into single lines (bug 47439). We can reproduce the two color gradients with internal shapes but not the smooth background (bug 92032, bug 48722). Thorn in my side for a long time but WONTFIX at the moment.
Comment 4 Heiko Tietze 2018-03-28 10:09:03 UTC
No other opinion, so making it a dup of the gradient bug.
