Description h. machemehl 2012-07-07 03:49:44 UTC
Created attachment 63931 [details]

Beim Zeichenhintergrund ist unter der Einstellung Hintergrundfarbe eine 
Farbe, wie bei der Zeichenfarbe, nicht frei auswählbar.

Für Textmarkierungen wäre diese Funktion recht hilfreich.

Vielen Dank

The backgroudnd color is applied to the whole paragraph.
The Hightlighting text applies to the selected text...

I do not see a problem with the funtion...
Pls corrospend in English here :-)

"The same color for background and text is non-selectable.

This feature would be very helpful for text selections."

I believe this bug description is slightly misleading.
If window size is not big enough to show text/background buttons, then from drop-down menu one cannot select a colour for text/background, it's only possible  to apply previously selected one.

I believe it would be nice to modify this dialog to allow user to apply colour OR select another one.

Confirmed for and 3.6b2.

Similar problem is with "Font Size" and "Borders" (in calc at least) -- nothing happens if one click them in the drop-down menu.
