I have been using OpenOffice on Mac OS X to print address labels with a jpeg background but would like to use LibreOffice instead due to issues with OO.
While the old document opens OK in LO, the background of the text layer does not appear to be transparent and thus the background image is not visible.
I just installed LO 6.2.2 for windows (win 10) and now I can at least see the background image and field names in the document, but when I print to a pdf the image is gone.
I've also upgraded to pre-release 220.127.116.11, but it behaves the same.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download and unpack http://hax.se/testkort.zip
2. Open the Testkort.odt document in Writer
3. Register the Testadresser.odb database (testadresser.ods is the source)
4. Print the document to a pdf file
5. Open the resulting pdf file
Address labels with only the names, no background image
Address labels with both background image and names similar to the result from the OpenOffice result provided in the file test2.pdf
User Profile Reset: No
I suspect the issue is that the top text layer is not transparent

Users on the Swedish LO mailing have verified my results.
I have been trying different versions and versions from 22.214.171.124 up to 126.96.36.199 works ok, but as of 188.8.131.52 it no longer works.

Thomas, I just opened testkort.odt, but I couldn't reproduce it with
