Description freddi34 2013-08-11 19:01:26 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a frame that is in front of some text (wrap: "through")
2. Right-click → frame → background and set the color to "no fill"

Current behavior:
The text behind the frame does not show through, the frame's background appears white.

Expected behavior:
If no fill color is set, it should be transparent. Currently this can only be achieved by selecting a fill color (white) and setting the transparency to 100%, which contradicts the meaning of "no fill".
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release

Hi Freddi,

thanks for the report. I see it, and indeed think that 'no fill' has the effect of 'transparant' looks logic. 
(However, I did not check with the logic in other parts where this may be used.)

- Set this as enhancement.
- Set the version to 3.3.0 : it's been this way from the start.

(Note I did not check for possible duplicate issues.)

This looks like a duplicate of Bug 34585 - frame with no-fill background has white background.  I'll mark it as such.
