Description malte_timmermann 2010-06-01 16:17:44 UTC
OOo does special things in High Contrast Mode, but actually there is no high
contrast mode flag available in the system, so the guessing sometimes leads to
unwanted behavior.

It's also unclear if it's wise to automatically only show outlines in Impress
when that special mode is detected/guessed. Does a HC mode user really only want
to see outlines? Does it make sense to only see the outline from a bitmap?

And because this guessing based on windows background color and font color
configured in the system, it sometimes leads to "false positives" for people
with dark themes/configurations. These people have no clue what a high contrast
mode would be, and how to disable it in OOo.

We should collect all special cases we do in HC mode, and decide how to deal
with that in the future.
In most cases, I guess there shouldn't be something like HC on/off, but simply a
good support for theming.

target 3.x - I hope we can start this when 3.3 is out of the door.
