Description Eyal Rozenberg 2021-06-11 13:30:45 UTC
To reproduce:

1. Create a new Impress presentation, with no template.
2. Insert a new 2x2 table.
3. Type in some text in one of the cells. (It should appear in black.)
4. Right-click that cell.
5. On the pop-up menu, select Table Properties
6. Select the Background pane.
7. Choose a black background.

Result: Text color remains black.

Expected result: Text color should be effectively white.

Note that if you change the background color of some box to black, then the Automatic color _does_ seem to become white.

Neither it follows the canvas color or table style. Clearly a bug.
