Description hervel 2022-04-22 11:42:22 UTC
Like Office 2019, there is the possibility to format the text with a reflection effect under the text, like a mirror and lots of associated parameters. This would be very useful for making rich and interesting documents. LibreOffice lacks a bit of that :)

Actual Results:
This function not present

Expected Results:
It should be :)

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
I'm looking forward to it :)))

Well this is not is ODF spec. We can do it manually after a fashion, with a conversion of the text string to curve, a copy paste, an invert and some fiddling with the resulting SVG.  ODF supports that, but not very convenient--and this is a convenience feature.  Do wonder what happens on LO import of OOXML text with that "attribute" in use.

Doing it seamlessly as a font attribute seems out of scope to project, with no need to extend ODF to accomodate. But there could be valid interoperability issues to address.

Concur as those effects are rather fontwork or drawing related to me. But for round trip compatibility with OOXML we need feature parity. => DUP
