Description Jim Avera 2014-05-05 06:25:47 UTC
Problem description: When creating a text Frame, in the Area tab, if the Fill drop-down is set to "Color", then some sub-windows appear where the color-picker should be, but there is no color-picker, just white space.  You can not select a color.

If an existing frame is edited, however, the color-picker appears as expected.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open new text doc
2. Insert-Frame, click Area tab 
3. Change the Fill drop-down to Color

Current behavior: Empty sub-windows appear

Expected behavior: Color picker should appear
Operating System: Ubuntu
Last worked in: release

Comment 2 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2014-07-06 15:49:43 UTC
Not reproducible for me with Version:
Build ID: b1d4fbb69491bcf211fb4c8cb5c2dd4d9efb4edb under Ubuntu 14.04 x86-64

Could this bug have been fixed by commit http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?h=libreoffice-4-3&id=dc17dad5fd7509f191718df8690e5847ab87669a ?

Best regards. JBF

Neither for me with LO
Build ID: 3c67e7dae5041122da02b3b181fcf783d46e6a34

@ Jean-Baptiste: This seems to be the old way to set frame parameters, with no change, so we can think so. master~2014-07-06_00.19.58_LibreOfficeDev_4.4.0.0.alpha0 is like 
So this commit has probably fixed also this bug.
Thank you for info.
I set Status to WORKSFORME, but I don't know if this the right tag.
