Confirming, with attachement 117349 (or a newly created slide) an Impress export to PNG, or to JPG retains the character text background color. But with export to SVG or to PDF, as well as to WMF or EMF does not retain the text background color.
The FontBackgroundColor is set at the Font and recorded in a metafile when the font is set at the OutputDevice. Export to PNG and JPG uses Vcl to paint the stuff or metafile, thus the info remains and the vcl text renderers in OutputDevice (DrawTextArray and DrawText) will do the necessary and draw the text background.
For SVG and PDF the model data is accessed and the information that text bachground color is used has to be used explicitely. Not sure about SVG export.
For PDF export a metafile is recorded and then the single actions get exported to PDF. Probably at text export, the test and code to add text background color fillings is missing. Checking there...
Debugging the pdf export in draw/impress, PDFWriterImpl::playMetafile is the place to look at, there the text functions strting at line 838. Bubli checked that writer does it right, so will probably take a look there, too.
Writer works since it draws the text itself in any aspects in SwFntObj::DrawText, including own calculation and rendering of the TextBackgroundColor using SwTextPaintInfo::DrawBackBrush. It circumvents using the FontBackgroundColor mechanism which is available at the Font completely.
This circumvents the necessity to handle that cases in export filters using metafiles and solves the problem. Question is if it is better to also circumvent (and create explicit metafile actions for the textbackgroundcolor) or to fix the errors in the exporters (svg and pdf at least)

1st try to solve
More complicated as on 1st look. Tried to handle TextBackgroundColor self in VclProcessor2D, added needed code. Already not simple to get the correct rectangle, text may be transformed in various ways. Added patch with working version.
Problem is that the rectangle created based on the TextLayouter's getTextBoundRect method is too tight - not identical with the rectangle used by Vcl or Writer, need to check how it gets created there.
This solves the pdf export, but not yet the svg one.
Creating now the correct rectangle, works as expected. This creates the exact rectangle vcl is using. I checked the vcl code doing this and tested with various mixed texts and vertical in draw/impress/calc/writer with DrawObjects. This solves the PDF case.
The on-screen tests show that the geometry is correct, but it looks bad in actual PDF export. Possibly there is an unwanted/erraneous offset in PDF export between text and geometry in general?
Another aspect: Checked the TextPrimitive decomposition by forcing bForceSimpleTextDecomposition to true. This shows that th etext decomposition does also *not* create the needed TextBackgroundFill if set. This is missing from the beginning, I am wondering how that could stay hidden for so long.

Yes - as written in comment 9 - it's not done yet
Any progress yet on this, Armin?
Hi David, no, unfortunately not - this is more work as expected. Main problem is that e.g. Writer handles all of this on it's own, not using the TextBackgroundColor at all in the Metafile stuff - sigh.
