Description Maxime THEPAULT 2014-09-12 06:54:45 UTC

With LibreOffice Writer, when I change color of a word (exemple : blue) it keep it in memory few seconds or minutes.

But often (with the same document I keep opened) if I click again on "a" button to change another word, the color choosen was lost and it apply another automatic color (red / brown).

With LibreOffice 4.2.x I never had that bug, and the color I choosen (blue) stayed for hours without problem.

Please, can you help me ?

Thank you

Hi Maxime,

I don't reproduce using LO &Windows 7 Home Premium. 
Did you try to rename your profile? 
Sometimes, that solves those issues.


Comment 4 Maxim Monastirsky 2014-09-12 14:09:58 UTC
It's a change made in [1] to make sure that the shown color is also the one that's actually used (see Bug 61868, Bug 71413). The solution was to reset the used color according to the one that's shown on the button. Preferably should be fixed completely by a global solution as part of Bug 72991, but I'll try to fix this particular case in the meanwhile.

This still happens in (tested by inserting an image using the menu).
