Created attachment 109356 [details]
the archive contains 2 file: the original rtf and the modified one

Problem description: We produce several .rtf files, but when we modify them and save them again these files get corrupted. 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a .rtf file and save it again 

Current behavior: background of text fields are not transparent but black

Expected behavior: background of text fields have to be transparent

Confirmed on windows 7 sp1, 64-bit en-US
Build ID: ad618ebe74a072c4ad8fae3b902f6ff1be98983d

However, please retest with the release. Or even a current build of master. This will not be fixed in the 4.2 branch which is EOL.

The RTF filters have been improved.

Also, if possible the work flow should probably be, Open .RTF --> Save as .OTT template, open the .OTT template save each as new .ODT document.

Opening and closing .RTF, a so called Round Trip, is not likely--and can not be guaranteed--to retain fidelity as it is not a native ODF format.

This seems fixed.

I could reproduce this issue with the version, that the author used. Now the issue is gone.
