Description Jim Avera 2014-05-05 06:21:07 UTC
If a text Frame is created with a background color and Transparency set to a value greater than 0%, then saving and reloading the document make the frame non-transparent, i.e., the transparency setting seems to not be saved.

This is a REGRESSION since 4.2 (the UI is different in 4.2 where transparency is set in the Background tab, whereas in 4.3 there are separate Area and Transparency tabs in the edit-Frame dialog).

Steps to reproduce:
1. In a text doc, select some text and do Insert->Frame, OK
2. Select the frame, Rightclick->Frame... set Area to a dark background color and Transparency to 90%.
3. Save; Reload

Current behavior: The frame returns to opaque status

Expected behavior: Transparency setting should be preserved

Operating System: Ubuntu

Looks like a dupe of bug 77723 to me, therefore I'll mark it as such. Please retest using a more recent version of our master versions (which you can download here: http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/

If you still can reproduce this bug, with a version newer then 2014-04-27 , please feel free to mark this bug again as UNCONFIRMED.

Kind regards,
