Description Fabian Rodriguez 2011-04-21 12:34:53 UTC
Version: LibreOffice 3.3.2 - OOO330m19 (Build:202), Ubuntu package 1:3.3.2-1ubuntu4

The area transparency applied is rendered differently in design view and in presentation view. This is very annoying because colors looking perfect while designing appears very poor while presenting.

The workaround for this is to use a gradient transparency very similar to the desired transparency (IE: for a desired transparency of 50% use a gradient between 50% to 51%).

An example document is attached. This has also been reported and confirmed in this Ubuntu bug:

NOT reproducible with reporters sample document. "LibreOffice 3.3.2  – WIN7  Home Premium  (64bit) German UI [OOO330m19 (Build:202 / tag]". I can not find any significant difference in view between edit mode and presentation mode.

@Fabian Rodriguez:
Please do not use such rare terms like "differently", "perfect", "poor", "wrong", but describe exactly! A screenshot sometimes will say more than 1000 words ;-)

The effect is shown on 
<https://launchpadlibrarian.net/70123472/PresentationView.png> from mentioned ubuntu bug report.

@Fabian Rodriguez:
Still visible with 3.4Beta?

Might be Ubuntu specific or something else.

Closing Bug due to reporter's inactivity as WFM.

Please feel free to reopen this bug if you find out that the problem still exists with the current LibreOffice version and if you can contribute requested additional information!

Bug 33591 - Area transparency turns gray in presentation mode

Hello Rainer, I'm the original bug reporter on Ubuntu.

I've checked the Bug "33591 - Area transparency turns gray in presentation mode
sounds similar" and I can confirm that this is duplicated of that one.

Thanks in advance
