Description Robert Großkopf 2020-05-07 18:54:01 UTC
Open a Writer document
Add a form control, for example a Text Box.
Go to Control-Properties > General > Font and press the button with the thre points.
Set Font Effects > Font color to "Automatic". It will show "Automatic" in case of Black.
Press "OK".
The dialog has closed.
Reopen the dialog and have a look.
There is standing "Black" instead of "Automatic".

Note: "Automatic" is set. You could test it in formatted fields with the format-cod example of the help and some data in a database. If such a field is created with the wizard there is standing also "Black" for the color - and the Format of the formatted field wouldn't be changed. Pressing "Automatic" one time in the control will solve the problem, but inside the control is almost shown "Black".

Tested all with OpenSUSE 15.1 64bit rpm Linux and LO 6.4.3.2. It's the same behavior with all older LO-versions here. "Automatic" will never been shown when opening the dialog.

I confirm it with

CPU-Threads: 4; BS: Windows 10.0; UI-Render: Standard; VCL: win;

I couldn't test with

because I had no access to context menu of text box.
