Description Alex Thurgood 2015-07-24 07:47:58 UTC
How to reproduce :
1) Open a database file

2) Create a new table in Table Design mode

3) In the grid view of Table Design mode, one selects the field data type in the second column. This used to be a drop down list of the data types that the underlying database engine supported, and which totally filled the cell. In current master, the suggested datatypes are now bounded by a rounded border, which no longer fills the cell (because the widget is rounded).

This is a regression (visual, but still a regression). After all, what is the point of having a cell border if we are going to draw a rounded button in it ?

Confirming myself since it would appear that no one else QAs Base bugs on OSX.

Unlikely, that this bug affects other OSes, but you never know, so CC'ing the usual crew.

Couldn't reproduce it with OpenSUSE 13.2, LO Version:
Build ID: e412e16d56caf426bac04c7e5966e2a9efa7c408

So a special Mac-problem?

I guess this can be bibisected with this repository: Adding keyword 'bibisectRequest'

I tried bibisecting this, but ran into issues with Java not working.

The issue was still present in the LO 4.3 repository, but I couldn't test with 4.2

Lowering importance and severity

I now see a rounded dropdown menu button, with blue shading, inside a cell with a white background - the button and blue shading do not fill the white cell...this bug appears to be getting worse.
