Description Saro miguel 2019-02-28 10:21:35 UTC
Libreoffice do not crash but displaying particular xls file is very bad on Mac. Color are false, hidden texts and numbers are visible .
(Macbook pro 2017, Mac OS 10.14.3)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.On Mac download https://www.util-pocket.com/Calcul%20devis%20pcb%2010_2018.xls
2.Double-clic on it and you see.
3. Nota, I'll join this file.

Actual Results:
bad displayed

Expected Results:
good displayed

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Same file displayed on PC with libreoffice 6.1 is perfect
Same file displayed on MAC with Microsoft Excel is perfect.

I'm not able to say if this file is correct.
And I don't know if OpenGL is enabled.

No repro for me with :


The file looks pretty much exactly the same when opened in Excel 16.22 (190211).
The colours appear to be nearly identical (as near as I can tell).
The tick boxes are displayed correctly.
The Price column shows 0,00

As for hidden text which is supposed to be visible, we would need to know where that hidden text is supposed to be !

I honestly can't see any major visual difference between the same file opened in LO6212 and Excel.

If there are particular differences, you need to point them out specifically (give cell references)
