Description Marguerite Labelle 2016-03-29 00:43:10 UTC
When I use a highlighting color in a text and I send the text to persons who use Microsoft "Word", they can't take out easily the color, as I could do it in my text. 

Would it be possible to fix this so that "Open Writer" would be compatible with Microsoft "Word" on this element. 

Thanks a lot!

Hi Marguerite,

Please attach a test file and give information on how you make the highlight and on the version of LibreOffice you use :)

Might be related to https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=96016 (highlighting and .doc : the color is changing when re-opened)?
