Description Gordo 2015-06-15 19:04:41 UTC
First Bug:
1. New Text Document.
2. Insert → Header → Default Style.
3. Click in header to get blue popover and click on it.
4. Select Format Header.
5. On Header tab click on More button.
6. On Area tab, select Colour and Grey 4, OK, and OK.
No background colour in header.

The Area tab was already set to Colour when it was first opened up.  On the first time, if you select None and OK and then go back in and pick a colour then it will work.

Second Bug:
7. Select Format Header from blue popover.
8. On Header tab click on More button.
9. On Area tab, select Colour and Grey 4, OK, and OK.
We have a background colour.  Notice how when you selected Colour that Grey 4 was already selected.
10. Select Border and Background from blue popover.
11. Select a border around the whole header with Set All Four Borders and OK.
We have a border but we have lost our background colour.

This happens because the Background tab of Border and Background is set to No Fill.  It does not sync with the other dialogue.  If you set a border with Header More then that border will appear in the Border and Background dialogue.  Also, the only options in Border and Background are Colour and Graphic.

Gordo, Buovjaga, I can't reproduce both issues.

Second bug: The Background tab of 'Border and Background' is set to No Fill, but it hasn't any effect in my test. (Also 'Border and Background' shows another dialog than the More button at the Header/Footer tab in the Page Sstyle dialog. I'll file a fresh bug for this.)
