Example of Fontwork in Word

Open attached document. It contains a TextBox with WordArt "Transform" in the upper part. The lower part has a screenshot, how it looks in Word 365.

The TextBox is imported as simple textbox. The same kind of object will be properly imported, if it is in a presentation.

It is not a regression, but a missing feature.

Mostly fixed in https://git.libreoffice.org/core/commit/cbf30153a5c776e6d1ee26f2f83c8f77503eceb9, see bug 125885. The commit message has the wrong number.

When comparing appearance in Word and Writer please keep in mind, that some features of Word (e.g. gradient on line, gradient with more than two stops, different fonts and character styles in a shape) are not possible in Fontwork in LibreOffice.

Known problem is, that a theme color other than accent1,... accent6 is wrongly imported. That will be tracked in a follow-up report.
