Comment 2 Julien Nabet 2013-04-09 19:24:53 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I reproduced this problem

I noticed this type of logs on console:
warn:legacy.osl:15196:1:filter/source/svg/svgwriter.cxx:3672: SVGActionWriter::ImplWriteActions: unsupported MetaAction #

Thorsten/Radek: one for you?
Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2013-04-09 19:47:35 UTC
Just for information, when adding trace about unsupported MetaAction, it's the "150" each time (META_TEXTLANGUAGE_ACTION, see http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/vcl/inc/vcl/metaact.hxx#91)

Also, notice that when displayed in WebKit and Inkscape, the text "Depth" is not rotated. It is correctly rotated in Firefox and in the source in Draw.

The shape is:

<g xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" class="com.sun.star.drawing.TextShape">
      <g id="id13">
       <text class="TextShape"><tspan class="TextParagraph" font-family="Arial, sans-serif" font-size="494px" font-weight="400"><tspan class="TextPosition" x="1574" y="5330" transform="translate(1574,5330) rotate(-90) translate(-1574,-5330)"><tspan fill="rgb(148,0,107)" stroke="none">Depth</tspan></tspan></tspan></text>

Notice that `transform` is on the <tspan> element. When I move it to text:

<g xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" id="id13">
       <text class="TextShape" transform="translate(1574,5330) rotate(-90) translate(-1574,-5330)"><tspan class="TextParagraph" font-family="Arial, sans-serif" font-size="494px" font-weight="400"><tspan class="TextPosition" x="1574" y="5330"><tspan fill="rgb(148,0,107)" stroke="none">Depth</tspan></tspan></tspan></text>

it becomes correct in WebKit: http://i.imgur.com/PuuP4jp.png
Comment 5 Gerry 2013-04-30 15:10:32 UTC
I can reproduce the bug on and on Ubuntu 12.10. Pattern is missing on export.

Importing (File->Open) the SVG file again does not work nicely. It imports as a black box in both versions. The import is unusable.

When inserting the SVG-file in (Insert->Picture->From File), it looks like in the other web browsers. It actually looks better in than in where the background is completely missing.

If the style of the blue hatching is copied via "Format Paintbrush" the shape is exported correctly. Just changing the hatching isn't enough.

Open test file, then File > Export > svg

Looking good. Hatching orange lines are there.
