The print preview brackground should always stay the color of the paper. I'm not sure if you can set the printing paper color in Open Office but otherwise Open office should assume that paper is white. However if the user changes her default background color in Windows to e.g. blue or black - Open Office suddenly shows the printing paper in print/Page Preview as being blue or black. Open Office's editing views/modes correctly use the blue or black default background from the operating system, but it's Page Preview should use the color of the physical paper to get correct WYSIWYG. That's what Page Preview is for I assume. Cheers -- David

Confirming described behavior. I think this is expected because parameter name is "Application background" and this is exactly what area _around_ paper sheet is, so resolving as Invalid.

I'm sorry - my mistake. I'll try to explain myself better. It's not the background around the paper that you mention which has the wrong color - the area around the paper is perfect. It's the paper itself in Print Preview mode. Isn't that mode supposed to be a precise WYSIWYG preview of the actual print using the correct colors? The problem I tried to describe is that the colors of windows changes the color of paper in the print preview mode which then is displayed wrongly - and not in White as paper is. Also the text which is printed out in black are displayed wrongly - colorwise - when you choose a different windows theme. Please check out the attached clarifying screenshots... Thanks for your time - I hope you can better use this explanation. -- David

Confirming - changing colors for "Window" items changes paper color and font color. Changing paper color could be justified to some extent, but changing font goes against any logic.

Option (for Print Preview) already exists: Tools / Options / OpenOffice.org / Accessibility Turn off: 'Use system colors for page previews'
