reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

This is a really strange bug, which I can not explain to me.  Maybe somebody else can help?
In WRITER you will see the ribbon shape from the sample odt-attachment, but if you export it to pdf, then this rectangle will be added as shown in the sample.pdf attachment.  You can not see this rectangle in WRITER.
But if you print it through a pdf-printer tool, then the ribbon shape will printed correctly without this rectangle.

But there also other issues.  If you save this file as a doc-document and open it in LO then you can see the ribbon shape, but the gradient filling is different.  If you open it in WORD 2007 it will also be shown, but with another third different gradient filling.
If you save this file as a docx-document and open it in LO then you will see no ribbon shape at all.  But if you open this file in WORD 2007 then you will see the ribbon shape, but with no gradient filling at all.

Additional info from Bug 73772: It affects only "Horizontal Scroll" and "Vertical Scroll" custom shapes, with radial, quadratic, ellipsoid and square gradients.

I can reproduce it with self-made builds of current master/5-0/4-4 under Fedora 22 (64-bit), and also with today's master build from tb@70. For some reason it doesn't happen with from Fedora repos.

instead of adding new features you should concentrate your efforts in geting rid of the annoying bugs.

i don't use libreoffice i am just a tester
Comment 15 Joel Madero 2015-08-11 02:26:24 UTC
That is not at all how the project works - volunteers fix bugs or add enhancements, as they want, when they want to. Please do not add comments to bugs that do not enhance the bug report and instead just dictate how other people do their work. If you want to nag about the process - feel free to do so on the mailing list.
