LO Draw and Impress have a dark document on dark background when using a dark gtk2 theme (e.g. Adwaita-Dark from http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/?content=148170) and having the libreoffice-gtk integration installed.
They should have a white document on dark background as Writer does.
See the attached screenshots.
This is with LO 4.0.3 and 184.108.40.206.

As pointed out on irc, this looks similar to bug #35365. That bug apparently fixed this for (at least) Writer and Impress, so looks like Impress/Draw have regressed.
If this is indeed a regression:
a/ It should be marked as such in keywords
b/ It should be bibisected https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Bibisect
c/ or at least the first version showing the regression should be specified
Sure, it's just that I only think it's a regression because bug #35365 talked about fixing it. I haven't checked if that was actually the case, but I'd look into it.
All of Writer, Impress and Draw have a dark background on 3.5.4 (1:3.5.4+dfsg2-0+deb7u2) and 3.6.5 (1:3.6.5-1), which is not surprising as the fix in bug #35365 only landed after 3.6.5.
Got 3.6.7 .debs from libreoffice.org, and all of Writer, Impress and Draw have a white document background.
So it looks like Draw and Impress have regressed at some point after 3.6.7. I'll try to narrow down when the regression happened.
So turns out I was wrong on the above. Things work fine with Adwaita-Dark, but don't work with another theme I have which is darker.
What is really happening is that, depending on the background color set in the gtk2 theme, Draw/Impress will draw a dark background or a white one.
Install the Adwaita-Dark theme linked above, set your gtk theme to Adwaita-Dark
See that LO Draw/Impress have a white document background
Modify /usr/share/theme/Adwaita-Dark/gtk-2.0/gtkrc, change bg_color from #363b3b to #111215
This is because of Tools > Options > Accessibility "Automatically detect high contrast mode of the system". If I uncheck that, Draw and Impress get a normal white background.
- LO tries to guess if the theme is high-contrast (and sometimes makes a mistake)
- Impress and Draw's document background get a dark color for some dark themes (apparently when LO thinks they are high contrast). This doesn't happen with Writer or Calc (they always have a white document background / white table).
-> There should be some consistency here. Either all programs follow the theme and have a dark background, or all of them have a white background. I lean for the latter: it doesn't make sense for Draw to display a non-white background; likewise for Impress.
Hi Emilio.. Does it solved in LO 220.127.116.11 or 18.104.22.168?
If no please change status back to UNCONFIRMED, otherwise RESOLVED WORKSFORME
