Thanks for reporting.

Is it possible to attach mentioned documents (the document itself, how it should look like and how it now looks like in LibreOffice).

Can you also explain how you created that document (step-by-step), so we can reproduce this behavior from scratch too?

Thanks in advance for your time,

PS: if you attached/added requested information, please feel free to mark this bug back to UNCONFIRMED

Thanks for reporting.

Seems like this is the exact behavior of Bug 33072. In that document there is also only a border line/curve visible where the text *should* be in between. Therefore I mark it as such. If bug 33072 is fixed, but you can still reproduce bad behavior in attached document, please feel free to reopen.

Kind regards,

A screenshot with LO 4.2.0

I think this bug is not a duplicate of bug 33072. WordArts in that bug example are visible in LibreOffice 4.1.4, but in an example for this bug WordArt “ОБРАЗЕЦ” is not visible at all. 

The situation has changed in LibreOffice 4.2.0: the WordArt is visible but is situated in front of the text (see attachment).

Never confirmed by QA team - moving to UNCONFIRMED. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

The word art is ok in 4.4 alpha2, but I had to change the table to have no fill - it had white so it blocked a part of the word at. Arrange - Bring to front did not help.

Reporter can check this in MS Office and create a separate bug report, if they wish.

In the word art is completely invisible.
