Description Thorsten Wagner 2019-05-26 22:28:28 UTC
Description:
In Writer thin white lines remain between pages while scrolling from time to time, expecially before/after page breaks (see screenshot).

Steps to Reproduce:
(1) Open Writer

(2) Create new document

(3) Insert some text for more than a page

(4) Insert a page break

(5) Scroll forth and back until issue becomes visible

Actual Results:
Rendering artefacts remain between pages as thin white lines while scrolling

Expected Results:
Page borders are rendered without remaining rendering artefacts


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No


OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
Issue was present in previous version of LO too. It seems better with current revision from master, but issue has not disappeared completely. Issue does not seem to be related to OpenGL.

@Thomas : not really sure what I'm supposed to be seeing here. I occasionally see a sort of grey line (rather than white) superimposed between the pages as I scroll down or up, is that what you are referring to ?
Comment 3 Alex Thurgood 2019-05-28 07:20:26 UTC
Forget that, I can confirm this with

Version: 6.3.0.0.alpha1+
Build ID: 92b0b8d78d69bd917842b09af7888b402144baeb
CPU threads: 4; OS: Mac OS X 10.14.4; UI render: default; VCL: osx; 
Locale: fr-FR (fr_FR.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

I just had to make sure that several pages were filled.

What is the artifact on the screenshot? the white tinny line ?
Comment 5 Thorsten Wagner 2019-05-30 22:43:08 UTC
Yes, in the case shown by screenshot there is one thin white line. Depending on scrolling there are situations with two or three of such lines too.
Comment 6 steve 2021-03-06 15:18:36 UTC
Unable to reproduce
macOS 11.2.2
Version: 7.1.1.2 / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: fe0b08f4af1bacafe4c7ecc87ce55bb426164676
CPU threads: 8; OS: Mac OS X 10.16; UI render: default; VCL: osx
Locale: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

@Thorsten: is this still happening for you and if yes, on which macOS?

Setting to wfm, please re-open should this be persisting for you.

Comment 8 Thorsten Wagner 2021-03-06 15:31:20 UTC
Yes, this still happends (from time to time). Maybe it is caused by current implementation of alpha blending. Discovered this issue on Linux/UNIX too in the meantime. Reverted the status to "new".
Comment 9 steve 2021-03-07 09:16:01 UTC
Thanks for double checking. If anybody discovers repro steps would be nice to share as I was unable to find any.

Thing is pretty common, have seen this on Windows too
