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.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.1.5 or 5.2.1  https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and 
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave 
a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
