screenshot of Writer with persona

Personas are only applied to toolbars at the top of the window.
Toolbars to the left- right- and bottom, and floating toolbars remain standard

Thanks for reporting. 
That's the correct behavior so far. Maybe this will be available in later versions. Therefore this is not a bug, but an enhancement. I see Kendy is already in CC, so he'll have a look at it when he have time for it.

Kind regards,

The bars at the left and right are not possible - the personas / themes do not have suitable bitmaps for that.

The bottom (toolbar + status bar) would be possible; unfortunately cannot get to that soon, so if anybody wanted to hack on this, let me give you code pointers, and turn this into a (slightly advanced) EasyHack:


You have to do a similar thing for the footer too.  The footer bitmap is already in place, you just need to provide that as a bitmap, and then use in the toolbox (in vcl/source/window/toolbox.cxx) that is at the bottom (pThis->GetAlign() == WINDOWALIGN_BOTTOM), and in the status bar - vcl/source/window/status.cxx (StatusBar::ImplInitSettings()).

The status bar will be easier, so I highly recommend first implement the functionality for the status bar only, and then let's make it begin in the bottom toolbar :-)

Hi, i want to work on this bug.
Comment 7 Michael Jaumann 2014-09-11 08:42:42 UTC

as far as i am i have a view questions:

1. this features works:

  persona/themes on the bottom toolbars/ statusbar.

  textColor is the same as in the menu bar.(menubar textcolor changes with switching between personas). (Wasnt implemented till yet in the upper toolbars)
 -> needs a restart of LO after changing theme
2. dosent work as expected :

persona consists of two parts: header and footer bitmap. the problem is that the header and footer bitmap are the same. My solution. I use for the top toolbars the top area and for the bottom toolbars the part up from the bottom area.

Is my solution okay? Created an attachment the shows the progress.

Thanks !

This bug fix comes with LibreOffice 4.4 (release notes https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/4.4) 

Firefox themes now apply also to bottom toolbars.
