Description thofmann 2009-06-14 19:12:51 UTC
when text-color is set to "auto" and 
background-color is changed to black 
then the text is not colored "white" but remains "black".

Sorry, not reproducible. Please give a step by step description.
Comment 2 thofmann 2009-06-15 11:21:45 UTC
Please refer to the following example document:

All text is set to "auto"-color but
some text is rendered in "white" and some in "black".

Change the background-color in order to identify the existing text.

Maybe there is a connection between the fact, that the document was first
produced with version 3.0.1

The background color has been changed by right-clicking a slide, then following
the "Slide" and "Setup Page" and there "Background"-tab. Since I use a German
version it would read "Folie" -> "Seite Einrichten" -> "Hintergrund"
Comment 3 wolframgarten 2009-06-15 11:27:25 UTC
Reproducible with the document. A click on the text brings it into the correct
color. Reassigned.

My users report the same problem:

Slides that worked with OO 2.X will often show only black (esp. the first page)
on OO 3.? (I only checked OOO310m19 from Debian). When you click into the text
box the text will appear.
Also, when saving the now correctly looking file, the problem reappears with
reloading it.

If you uncheck "Right-click > Slide > Display Background of master" the text
becomes visible in black.

I can also reproduce this from scratch: 
1. Create new empty presentation
2. Right-click > Slide > Page Setup...
2.a Set Background > Fill  to Color, Black   [apply to all does not 
3. Create some text box, type something.
4. When I unselect the textbox, the text sometimes disappears but appears again
when selecting the textbox.
   Especially after save + reload (!) the text is "not there" [black] (at least
most of the time).

This is a regression. It worked (at least) for 2.X.

Maybe the problem was introduced after 3.0.1 (see thofmann's comment), but I
haven't check that.

Hint: With dark blue (e.g.) instead of black, you can have white text, save +
reload and get black text on blue (instead of black on black).

A superficial test on 3.0.0 (Windows XP) did not show the deviant behavior.
So the bug was probably introduced afterwards.
Comment 6 smiling_thax 2009-12-05 19:37:45 UTC
I've just tried the latest snapshot
OOo-dev 3.2 320m7

The issue seems to be fixed there.

Reset assigne to the default "".
