Problem description: As of version 4.0 you can attach a note to a selected text range. This text range will be marked with a color. If you happen to make the field shadings invisible this color disappears.
This behavior is unexpected and not logic. It takes time to deduce this link between your note-over-text range and field shadings.
Steps to reproduce:
1. select text area
2. attach note to it
3. make field shadings invisible
Current behavior: selected area looses color
Expected behavior: selected area should not be influenced in any way.
Operating System: All
Version: 22.214.171.124 release
thanks for the issue. Looks as a useful enhancement to break the link with field shadings.
Set version to 4.0.0 - in that one the notes with selection were introduced.
Also now noted at Ask LibO:
That was for Version: 126.96.36.199 Build ID: 420m0(Build:1)
Cannot reproduce this bug any more.

Changing status to RESOLVED WORKSFORME.
If you still see the problem in a current version of LibreOffice, pleas reopen as UNCONFIRMED so that the QA team can try to reproduce.
