Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-07-26 12:42:10 UTC
Steps how to reproduce with Server Installation of  "LibreOffice rc  German UI/Locale [Build-ID:  815c576] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 

1. open attached "sample20.ods
2. Select D2:F8
3. <Contol+c> for Copy
4. open New Writer Document
5. Toolbar Icon 'Save As -> GDI Metafile'
   Bug: Cell Background E5 containing "1" is not shown green in Writer

Same in DRAW and when Paste to other LibO Version.

The problem happens when Copy in 3.6

Paste as bitmap works fine.

Worked with 3.5.5, so Regression.

I will still test when the bug has been introduced.

Was ok with 
- MinGW Build 2012-06-24
- Server installation of  Master "LOdev 3.6.0alpha0+  – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) ENGLISH UI [Build ID: 475d0c5-829fc92-39746e8-206648e-fefd87]" (2012-02-14)

Still [Reproducible] with parallel installation of Master "LOdev "   - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) ENGLISH UI [Build ID: b0a7277]" (tinderbox:Win-x86@6, pull time 2012-07-24 06:37:14)

CRASH with Server installation of Master "LOdev 3.6.0alpha0+  – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) ENGLISH UI [Build ID: a502549]" (tinderbox: Win-x86@6-fast, pull time 2012-05-31 07:33:55) when I pasted CALC contents with conditinal formatting
Also Crashed:
server-installation of Master "3.7.0alpha0+  – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) ENGLISH UI [Build ID: b255de8]" (tinderbox: Win-x86@6-fast, pull time 2012-06-05 23:16:58)

Later versions do no longer crash.

You don't need to test for the time a conditional format regression has been introduced. They have been introduced all at the same time by my big merge of the new conditional format code.

I'll need to inspect the gdi metafile code to see if they support our conditional formats at all.
Comment 4 Markus Mohrhard 2012-09-18 17:45:03 UTC

It has been pushed to "master":


rows with cond formats don't have empty background, fdo#54661, fdo#52535

The patch should be included in the daily builds available at

Comment 5 Markus Mohrhard 2012-09-21 23:49:19 UTC
Fixed in 3-6-2 and 3-6. See Bug 54661 for details.

Please don't mark them as duplicates, one is a regression and one is part of a new feature.
