It should be possible to specify the corner radiuses of borders and paragraph/text backgrounds in styles
That would also improve HTML import/export handling
Thanks for new idea
Interesting, what ODF standard tells about it?
I don't know if it's in the odf standard or not, it's basic html formatting, it's annoying to have the word processor dumber than simple common css rules
This is tricky because really we must abide by ODF standards. I'll mark as NEW as it's an interesting idea but when a dev looks at it they very well might say "it's not a standard" and that IS a valid response.
That being said we might be able to do something internally, I'm not up to date enough on standards and our policies regarding standards to know.
Marking as NEW, Enhancement, Lowest
Enhancement (already set)
Lowest (very few users would actually benefit from this, might not meet standards, somewhat difficult to implement)
Created attachment 71500 [details]
Document with paragraphs having round corners
This document contains round corners in paragraphs by using svg picture as background. It will be possible to write Basic Macro for automating this process. But it will not help much with exporting to HTML. Writer not even allows placing pictures behind of text.
And it will be helpful for developing to have well formatted HTML page with round corners as example of how it should be.
I believe this enhancement request should be closed as WORKSFORME, but will ask more knowledgeable persons to evaluate.
To reproduce what is mocked up in attachment 71500 [details].
1. Insert Textbox
2. Select, right-click, Position and Size - Slant & Corner radius tab
3. Set Corner radius to desired value.
4. Select, right-click, Area, choose desired background
5. File-Save As, .html
What you change is the background not the text/paragraph. I guess the expectation is to have text with varying line wraping, eg. filling a circle like
Don't see this fly. Do you, Regina?

Correct. It was a response to comment 4, but on reexamination, I now see that OP is for "styles".

This seems similar to bug 58908 (which was for Graphic styles in Impress)
You can get such text using a legacy rectangle with setting "adjust to contour".
Missing export of text boxes and legacy rectangles to HTML and XHTML is a different problem.
I see such decorative feature not as property of simple paragraphs.
Closing as out of scope (workaround is available).
