Screenshot in Karbon

Two shapes with red2yellow gradients were made in Karbon.
LO Draw open them as grey to light grey and ignores gradient direction (W-SE and W-E).

Same in 3.6beta2
Comment 3 Regina Henschel 2012-08-12 18:47:49 UTC
Calligra uses svg:linearGradient and LibreOffice and Apache OpenOffice use draw:gradient and do not understand the element svg:linearGradient yet. So a default gradient is shown. It is a missing feature.

setting "odf" keyword

relevant places in the ODF import filter:

xmloff/source/style/GradientStyle.cxx (apparently the existing draw:gradient import)

The error is still there in Version:
Build ID: 5b829710d65310c6082c2c65ec1239515e319a8e
TinderBox: Win-x86@39, Branch:master, Time: 2014-12-02_06:39:26
Locale: de_DE

Still the same reason: missing feature "svg gradient".

From my duplicate bug (bug 94588): Calligra also uses <svg:radialGradient>
Comment 14 Regina Henschel 2018-01-24 12:56:55 UTC
Change subject to reflect the root cause.
