Description Nicholas Small 2022-06-09 12:06:32 UTC
The text a box with blue background (created in Word) appears as black when it should be white. (I can't see how to attach a file - hope I get asked later.)

Comparison of Writer and Word

Repro in

Version: / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 30(Build:2)
CPU threads: 16; OS: Linux 5.13; UI render: default; VCL: kf5 (cairo+xcb)
Locale: pt-BR (pt_BR.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Ubuntu package version: 1:7.3.3~rc2-0ubuntu0.21.10.1~lo1
Calc: threaded

See in the attached image the comparison of how Writer (left) and Word (right) render the file.

Note that the difference is not only in the text color, but also that in Word the font has some sort of blurred outline, which is something we still don't support in Writer and that should be implemented.
