Description brutzman 2009-06-30 14:45:24 UTC
Upon upgrading from 3.0 to 3.1, found that slide titles in a previous presentation have extreme shadowing. Image attached. Font is Tahoma, checked style to see that no shadowing was turned on. Tried changing font/size/shadowing but the problem persisted. This is a showstopper issue for me that makes Impress unusable until fixed.

Example available in url. Since OOO 3.1 install clobbered my 3.0 version, I now have to figure out how to backtrack. :(

Go to View, Master, Slide Master. Select the title with the shadow, right-click the title, in the context menu select Area. Go to the Shadow tab, unselect the Use shadow check box. Click OK, then Close Master View.

solution works, thanks. suggestion: check the loader defaults, i did not have the shadow set on when using earlier versions of OO.

Reopened, since there is only a workaround but not a fix.

I yet fail to understand what the issue is.  Is there a document created with a version prior to OOo 3.1 where there was no shadow and in OOo 3.1 and newer there is shadow?  Was there a shadow in that document but not as extreme as in OOo 3.1? If  is the case we need a document that shows no shadow in versions prior to OOo 3.1 and that shows a shadow in OOo 3.1 and newer. If such documents exists I can have a look at it. If  then the rendering of the shadow may have changed with implementation of the primitives so this is one for aw. I simply doubt that  is the case as this should be reported more often. If not reproducable this issue can not be fixed as of now.

Ok sorry I didn't saw the bugdoc url. I had a look at this document and the title style has a shadow enabled. Which previosly was not usefull for a title object as a title object has only text but no filling and no outline. In 3.1 we added a new drawing layer that had many enhancements. One was that now text is also included in a shapes shadow (which makes perfectly sense). Unfortunatly the core guys didn't thought about the implecations when loading old documents. Maybe whe should introduce a new xml flag and fix this when importing document created with versions before OOo 3.1. But this actually should hit only a minority of users which had shadow set to shapes with text and without filling (if the shape has a filling the text shadow is not seen).

changing target as this has a workaround and should only happen to a few users. Correct fix needs a file format change.
