Description scorpiosoft 2020-10-12 09:23:23 UTC
When is set preinstalled theme toolbars which are docked left or right (i.e., are VERTICAL) do NOT use color from chosen theme.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set internal preinstalled theme from menu "Tools->Options", item "LibreOffice->Personalization" (gray in my case) - Standard toolbar became gray.

I don't thing above bug has any relation to dark mode of Windows (as it was marked as request for dark mode support).

Read bug description more carefully, please - it is for BUILT-IN themes of LibreOffice.

OK, why a picture is worth a thousand words...

Simple STR.

Open Draw.
Tools -> Options -> Personalization, select a 'Preinstalled' theme
Note Drawing toolbar docked Left and vertical has no theme color applied
Unlock Drawing toolbar
Undock Drawing toolbar, and drag attach to horizontal position (Bottom or Top)
Same Drawing toolbar now takes the 'Preinstalled Theme' background color.

Of course IIRC this 'theming' is held over from abandoned Firefox Personas work. Looking at the personalization.cxx and content of gallery/personas has only ever been applied to the 'Header' and 'Footer', i.e. the main menu and the docked horizontal toolbars. It has never affected more UI components and certainly does not respond to full os/DE provided theming.

Might be helpful to apply to toolbars when docked to vertical position, but hardly seems worth dev effort.
