Screenshot of Libreoffice Draw with no page visible

Problem description: Page not visible in Libreoffice Draw

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Libreoffice Draw
2. A page should be visible to start working on.

Current behavior: No page is visible when opening Libreoffice Draw

Expected behavior: A blank page should be visible when first starting Draw.

Tested on Lubuntu 14.04 LTS 32Bit in VirtualBox. Zooming in and out does not reveal a page either.

Operating System: Ubuntu

Mmh, strange one :-). Looks like the application background isn't detected correctly (altough set correctly in the settings).

Thanks for reporting!

Reproducible using Windows 8.1 with LibreOffice Version:
Build ID: 145f2e970f46a3a3e5456b122d71f17c3abe878f
TinderBox: Win-x86@42, Branch:master, Time: 2014-04-26_23:32:36

Kind regards,

When you draw a shape and switch on and off showing snap lines, the application background is shown.

When you scroll, the view is not refreshed, see attached screenshot.

I believe this patch by Kendy is relevant, but it seems he missed the fdo bug no.:


"Fix repainting problems in Draw."

I have installed a newer Libreoffice 4.3 build and confirm that this bug is fixed.
