Format >> Page >> Area >> Hatch doesn't work properly in a Writer document with mirrored pages.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a Writer document
2. Format >> Page >> Page
3. Set page layout to 'Mirrored' and click 'OK'
4. Format >> Page >> Area >> Hatch
5. Select one of the hatch options and click 'OK'
The hatch will be applied to the right hand page correctly but not the left hand page.
The left hand page will show a solid block of colour instead of the hatch.
The hatch should be applied to the LH page as well as the RH page.

Robin - if possible it would be nice to find out if this is a regression. If you have time please test against earlier releases of LibreOffice. Best way to to do it is to test against 3.3 - if it didn't exist in 3.3 we know that it's a regression against the Fork from OOo.

I'm afraid I can't find LibreOffice v3.3
All I could find is v3.3 of the Software Developers Toolkit which carries the OpenOffice branding.
I only installed LibreOffice for the first time yesterday v5.4.2 and upgraded to 184.108.40.206 today when I hit the bug.
So, I'm rather out of my depth. Previously I was running OpenOffice v4.1.3.
The feature to configure Gradient, Bitmap, Pattern and Hatch isn't present in OO 4.1.3. The only feature offered is Format >> Page >> Background >> Colour so I'm guessing that this is a new feature added by LibreOffice.
Hope this helps a little, Sorry I can't give you more to go on. I'm off on holiday tomorrow so can't be much help.
OK, further to my last comment, I found and installed LibreOffice 220.127.116.11 only to discover that the capability to configure Gradient, Bitmap, Pattern and Hatch isn't provided.
The only option offered is the capability to configure the page's background colour (Format >> Page >> Background >> Colour).

in previous versions, the hatch option wasn't available....
Dear Robin Henderson,

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
