Description gzernmplatz 2013-03-27 15:38:30 UTC
Problem description: When I view a document in print layout, the space on the screen beside the document (about half the screen) is bright white although my colour scheme has a black background (I succeeded in telling the text background to be black but not the window background; this causes problems as I am visually handicapped).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Set colour scheme "Kontrast schwarz" (contrast black)
2. Use LibreOffice Writer in print layout

Current behavior: Background still bright white

Expected behavior: Background black (and text white), as colour scheme says

Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release

Thank you for reporting this bug!

I have been able to confirm this issue.  It is reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit).

Steps to Reproduce (in Windows 7):
1. Right mouse click on the desktop and choose PERSONALIZE and scroll down the designs to choose the design high contrast black
2. Now open WRITER and change to the print layout (go to the menu VIEW -> PRINT LAYOUT)
