Description gasekej144 2014-01-25 17:41:52 UTC
Problem description: 
In Calc, right-clicking on any cell and then selecting Format Cells often produces a dialog box that is unusable as it is almost transparent. Closing and re-opening the dialog has no effect. Calc has to be restarted to clear the problem.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Right click on any Calc cell
2. Select Format Cell

Current behavior:
Dialog is partly transparent so its contents cannot be seen.

Expected behavior:
Dialog allows formatting of cell with all contents visible.

Please note:  This doesn't happen all of the time but has happened often enough for me to report this as a bug.

I'm using Kubuntu 14.04, fully updated with LibreOffice loaded from PPA. The previous version, in the Ubuntu archive (4.1.3?) also exhibits this problem. KDE version is 4.12.1.

Is this similar to bug #33985, long resolved for version 3?
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: rc

I wasn't expecting most people to see this problem as I din't find a current bug report. If others were seeing it I'm sure the bug/problem would have been reported by now. As I said before, it doesn't happen very often.

As I'm not experiencing this problem right now I cannot post a screenshot. When I see this problem again I'll try to attach a screenshot to the bug report.
