Description Andreas B. 2012-04-15 02:06:28 UTC
Problem description: 

This is a Feature Request I think.

Steps to reproduce:
Create a shape, e.g. a rectangle
Add a shadow

Current behavior:
The shadow is a rectangle in the background, not a "Shadow"

Expected behavior:
The shadow should look like the new page shadow LO now has, I think this is a Gaussian shadow.

Platform (if different from the browser): 
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0

This is an enhancement request, therefore changing the 'Importance' field and the 'Status' field.

I second this feature request. Soft shadows would be nice.

Isn't there another request for the same feature? I can't find it for now ...
Comment 2 Andreas B. 2013-02-08 19:34:02 UTC
There is an existing Bugreport on OOo, but I think not on LO.

Thanks for identifying the duplicate. What I requested was only for Impress, but I suppose it wouldn't hurt to make it available across the components.

Editing the summary for clarity. (I'm using brackets instead of parentheses, as somehow the open parenthesis is blocked.)

It seems this is a highly requested feature and some research was happening around this? What happened with this by the way?

I need this feature for the update of the gallery items, cause with blur shadow I can improve gallery items a lot. 

In additon MSO save blured shadow so it would be very cool if LibO can import the shadow correct.
Comment 15 Heiko Tietze 2019-10-07 10:14:04 UTC
Unfortunately the blur property has not made it into the open document format yet, which would be the first step.

I think we can close it as FIXED, because I see worked feature in current 7.1 master build

Heiko, Regina?
Comment 20 Heiko Tietze 2020-08-28 07:51:43 UTC
Ahmad (Tomaz, Miklos): Can we resolve this ticket (and related maybe) as resolved?
Comment 21 Tomaz Vajngerl 2020-08-28 12:06:48 UTC
Fine to me and I guess the things that are missing should get its own bug report (for example we can't currently set this for images in Writer).
