LibreOffice vs Chrome

1) Open Writer
2) Insert
3) Notice there is a solid black color around the flash part of the camera and the solid color around the words 'MEGA' and '3.2'.

This can be classified as a regression as the gradient was there in, though the flash gradient wasnt in the correct direction.

Narrowing range when regression was introduced:
reproduced in, not reproduced in (Windows 7).
Comment 6 Xisco Faulí 2016-08-30 16:06:50 UTC
it looks like the gradient issue was introduced in the range 3222f7b9933788a34aaa639dbae05b54e188adba..98741a2078ebd0a9c83f6e676f99de526990f423 where there're many commits made by Armin Le Grand. Specially these two drew my attention:

- b7a425aab6122b5848362815e5fe665c7e38da05 - Resolves: #i121801# Corrected handling of gradient transformations
- e0d8fb0cb157668dffa683fe81418304f8a843dd - Related: #i121801# Corrected objectBoundingBox case for GradientTransform

The gradient above the word 'PIXELS' has to large steps. The color of the stroke of the words 'MEGA' and '1.2 PIXELS' is too dark and the stroke is a little bit too thick.

Seen in Version: (x64)

Dear Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired),

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat:

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
