The LibreOffice UI while having switched on high-contrast-mode/theming

I started LibreOffice, not one of its applications, on my system with configured high-contrast-mode and chosen high-contrast-#1 theme (yellow text, black background).

The screenshot shows, that the UI ignores high-contrast accessibility in general.
The menu and its dialogs behave acceptable.

Comment 6 Martin Lemburg 2017-11-02 11:42:13 UTC
I tested with LibreOffice version 5.4.2.2 and found still the same rendering issues in high-contrast-mode.

1. Menu bar is black on black and hovering color has insufficient contrast
2. Hovering color over menu items or entries in the left side bar has insufficient contrast
3. The start center uses a light background instead of the system window color (GetSysColor(COLOR_WINDOW)), the default high-contrast-window color.

BTW testing in high-contrast on Windows is not that difficult. The hotkey LeftAlt+LeftShift+PrintScr is normally enabled and toggles the high-contrast-mode with its default or last used high-contrast theme/design.
