Description titubasorciere 2021-04-19 09:07:21 UTC
Libre office ne s'affiche pas correctement en mode contraste élevé sombre. Le texte des boutons de la barre de menus s'affiche en lettres blanches sur fond blanc (illisible), sauf lorsqu'on clique dessus. Et malgré l'activation du mode sombre, l'interface et les menus restent de couleur claire. C'est un problème très génant pour l'accessibilité. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.activate high contrast (dark) on windows accesibility option
2.open LO writer (or any LO component)

Actual Results:
.The menu bar (on the top) is unreadable, and all interface is bright white 

Expected Results:
everything should appear white letters on a black background like firefox for instance

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
The help guide is completely useless regarding accessibility

I've updated to latest version 
The bug is still present when using the classic "menu" interface, but seem to be solved when using the "thumbnail" user interface ("onglets") 

to enable it : affichage > interface utilisateur > sélectionner "onglets"

It helps, though some visually impaired people need the classic display, so it would be great if the high contrast also worked in this case.

Conclusion : problem partially solved

Problème partiellement résolu avec la version qui propose différentes dispositions pour l'interface utilisateur.

Le problème persiste avec l'interface utilisateur par défaut "barres d'outils standard", cependant le mode "onglet" semble compatible avec le contraste élevé sombre. 

pour activer le mode "onglet" : menu Affichage, puis "interface utilisateur", puis sélectionner "onglet" dans la rubrique "les types d'interface utilisateur"

en espérant que ça aide.

If you put WONTFIX it means you consider LO isn't able to fix this or heard someone from LO indicate they don't want to fix this.
Let's put this one to UNCONFIRMED.

> Hello, is it duplicate of bug 98032?

Not really. The bug i reported is about the user interface (menus etc) AND the document section. But for document section I've solved this by changing default colors in the color settings. I put a dark background for the page and it's ok for me. But it does not change the colors in the menus and toolbars.

I see the problem with 7.1, but with 7.4 it is gone (tested on Win 10 with high contrast theme). Closing as duplicate of the probable fix.
