Description Kenneth Hanson 2018-04-27 03:57:12 UTC
I noticed this when black and white drawing that I printed from an exported PDF had a light grey background. It turns out that LO Draw is incorrectly using the "document background" from Options > LibreOffice > Application Colors.

I had previous set this color to a light gray in Writier to avoid eyestrain, and to confirm I set the background to purple. The background comes out purple in PDF export in Draw, as well as Impress.

Printing from Draw is not affected. PDF export in Writer and Calc is not affected.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set application color "document background" to something other than "default".
2. Export to PDF.

Actual Results:  
PDF background color is changed.

Expected Results:
PDF background colod is unaffected.

Reproducible: Always
