Description scootergrisen 2018-07-10 00:44:28 UTC
When i start LibreOffice i see a small area with the logo and light green background a progress bar sometimes white text just above the progress bar.

It seems the white text was telling me what things was being loaded and the first startup took some time but not after closing libreoffice it starts up much faster and the white text does not appear.

The white text is not very visible on the light green background.
The contrast is not high enough so hard to read the text.
Also because the text is there for a very short time so not much time to see it.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot system
2. Start LibreOffice
3. Look at the hard to read text above the progress bar

Actual Results:
Hard to read the text

Expected Results:
Text should be easy to read

Reproducible: Sometimes

User Profile Reset: No

The text is not meant for reading, it's more a debug utility. If you are annoyed by it you can disable the splash screen per Tool > Options > ... (cant find the option right now, maybe someone else knows).

Closing the ticket as WF, thanks for reporting anyway.

The --nologo command line switch disables the splash screen at program start.

If the text is not suppose to be read then perhaps remove it.

It dont make so much sense that the very first text the user seems when starting the program is something the user is not suppose to see.
