Description dave.mueller 2011-08-24 06:49:36 UTC
Currently, only "Color" and "Graphic" are allowed as possible table background options. It would be nice, and would also increase compatibility with MS Word, if "Hatching" would be supported too.

Seems like a good request (although I've never once used this feature in MS Word) ;) 

Marking as:
Normal (can prevent high quality work under certain circumstances, I changed this from Enhancement as it becomes a problem when importing a .doc or .docx that has this formatting)
Low (not affecting many people as far as I know)

Thanks for reporting

Hatching in the table cells : highly desirable, as well as mosaics points.
Comment 9 Joel Madero 2013-09-08 20:01:28 UTC
Patches more than welcome. This is an enhancement -- I accidentally moved it out of this category but it is one. In general enhancements take a much lower priority than real bugs -- like bugs that result in loss of data or crashes.

But feel free to dig into the code and try to implement this.

The upcoming ODF 1.4 will allow background fills hatch and gradients in addition to color and image.
