tri-colored table

This bug was tested LibreOffice v4.1 running in windows 7. It appears that LibreOffice loses some colors importing MS docx files with tables.

Steps to reproduce the bug:
1. Open attached Demo-Hayden-Management-tableOnly.docx document in Word or OpenOffice
2. Open attached Demo-Hayden-Management-tableOnly.docx document in Writer
3. Compare the documents. 

Note how the light pink color in row 2011 and 2013 is white in LO 4.1 and later.

Comment 2 Matthew Francis 2014-09-16 03:55:39 UTC
Reproduced on OSX 10.9.4, on LibreOffice:
4.4 master (* I wondered if this might be bug 83312, but that's fixed on master already)

3.3.0 doesn't show the colours in the document at all, so this may be something that OOo fixed independently rather than a regression

-> NEW
-> Component: filters and storage
Comment 3 Luke 2014-09-16 20:58:50 UTC
I don't think this is a regression. 
LibreOffice  no colors
LibreOffice 3.6: bad/light pink color is white

This bug was fixed in Apache OpenOffice between 3.4.1 and 4.0.
AOO 3.4.1: header pink, table white
AOO 4.0.0: good

Devs, would it be useful to narrow this down in AOO commits? Maybe need to cherry pick a commit.
Comment 4 Luke 2014-10-19 07:51:30 UTC
This bug was fixed in a recent master build. Great work team!
