Description Roman Kuznetsov 2020-11-14 15:50:23 UTC
Change a Calc comment shadow to the soft shadow

Now we have a hardcoded Calc comment old shadow (if you try add a shadow from Commant Area options, then you'll have TWO Comment shadow)

After Ahmad Ganzouri's patches we have nice blur (soft) shadows for shapes. Comment's area is shape too.
I suggest change our old black Comment shadow to newer blur (soft) shadow by default

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a Comment to cell in Calc
2. Look at the shadow

Actual Results:
We have an old ugly Comment shadow

Expected Results:
We have a new nice soft Comment shadow

Reproducible: Always

We should use soft shadows where possible. So a clear yes from me.
