Description Kenney Phillis Jr 2011-03-31 08:12:39 UTC
When opening a file that specifies a background gradient using PowerPoint 2010, the font formatting remains, but the background for the themes is not fully applied.

A sample of this occurs in the freely available University lecture notes that AMD released for OpenCL.

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

I think, Background Gradient is a feature, that has yet to be implemented.

Thanks for bugreport
Please, attach file that demonstrates problem
Comment 4 Kenney Phillis Jr 2012-08-31 06:45:13 UTC
I just tested the files that had the issue with a newer release of Libreoffice. Libreoffice ( version from Ubuntu 12.04 ) did not display this issue.

Thanks for additional testing
