Sample showing problem

Following up on Bug 35916  I notice that the 'extrude' option no longer exists but that we can still 'convert to 3D'.  And that text follows what rotation options still exist.  Good.

On conversion to 3D the text in an object becomes very boldened, and difficult to read.  See sample document.

Confirmed on libo 4 Version (Build ID: 87906242e87d3ddb2ba9827818f2d1416d80cc7) WIN7 - 64bits

but I think this is not a bug but a enhancement you want ?
The text is converted to 3D too, and this is why it become "unreadable".
This a "bad" effect of 3D conversion for me.

I have change the status to enhancement: ok ?

I'd be tempted to close this one, looking at the latest behviour.

Yes, the text does become a bit overboldened by becoming a 3D object, but if the font size is increased and the lighting adjusted it is easy to see why.  

I can't see any way to fix this other than to extrude the text with a different shade for the extruded sides as the face, and that sounds complex (but interesting)

As you are the OP I cerainly follow your suggestion to close as WONTFIX. The conversion into 3D has drawbacks on readability. Thanks for keeping your own 4 years old issue in mind.
