Description OfficeUser 2018-12-05 08:43:12 UTC

- please open the attached odg-file.

- right-click any of the (svg) logos and copy it to clipboard

- open the paste buttons drop down menu

You get two redundant paste formats:
LibreOffice 6.1 Drawing
LibreOffice drawing format

Please note that this is not a cosmetic issue only!

If you paste the Visteon-logo into an SEPARATE draw document transparency is lost and you get blue background color! This happens because "LibreOffice 6.1 Drawing" is default for CTRL+v. Workaround is to explicitly choose "LibreOffice drawing format" when pasting between separate documents.

Could you please attach a screenshot to see 'how it looks at your side' ?
Comment 4 Xisco Faulí 2018-12-06 13:24:46 UTC
In previous versions, it was called Draw 8 and Drawing format and now it's called LibreOffice 6.1 Drawing and LibreOffice drawing format.

I don't think this is a regression...

Regarding the blue background, I can reproduce it in

Comment 6 Xisco Faulí 2018-12-06 13:36:35 UTC
Similar problem as in bug 104633.
in GTK3 it worked fine until https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=962e0bb4b31265b046fe4fb57d3087e20f5fe4ef
but it's reproducible in all platforms since OOo times...

Comment 8 Roman Kuznetsov 2021-01-15 20:05:09 UTC
I still can't repro in 7.2 in Windows 7

Xisco, is it only Linux (or even only GTK3) problem?
Comment 9 Stéphane Guillou (stragu) 2021-06-26 14:15:49 UTC
I can repro with LO 7.2 and 7.3 on Linux.
Copying the Visteon logo to a new Draw document loses the transparency with the default paste (LibreOffice x.x Drawing) but keeps the transparency with the second option (LibreOffice drawing format).
The default should be the second one, seeing that it performs better. (And the other option could then be removed, as they are named confusingly similarly?)

Dear OfficeUser,

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 https://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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

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

Warm Regards,
QA Team
