Description michael_tang 2009-08-27 22:48:33 UTC
I met problems for exporting as pdf after OOo 3.00m15 (build9379), and it is
still unfixed on OOo3.11RC2.
Try to highlight this issue and seek for your attention for solving this.

Problem description-
Impress presentation background appears some stripes while exported as pdf by
Impress later than build9379.
Image in master slide will change shape while export to pdf format by using this
function at Impress later than build9379.
I put 4 examples on my FTP server and you are welcome to download them.

Please attach the original files to this issue (odp). I can see the described
problems in the pdf from your server but to fix this problem we need to
reproduce the problem. Thanks.

Did you use some special export settings in the pdf dialog? The problem of the
background picture is reproducible. But I cannot generate the stripes at the
moment (OOo310_m19). 
Comment 5 michael_tang 2009-08-28 16:02:26 UTC
No special setting at all.

I reported this issue on May 2009 at OOo community forum, 
you can find it at

What OS are you using? VISTA or XP? 
Mine is VISTA.
I can reproduce those stripes on another PC which OS is W2K pro.

The other interested thing is on the left bottom side you will find date
function had changed its color from white into black! 

Files have uploaded to FTP server.

Comment 6 wolframgarten 2009-08-31 14:02:45 UTC
Not reproducible here on XP and Linux.Trying further...
Comment 7 michael_tang 2009-08-31 19:53:00 UTC
Interesting! Let me find a XP PC and make some tests.
Will post the results after finishing.

I repeated the process listed under the orginal bug report with the listed
settings and process on another Vista System under both heavy and light
graphical dependencies with other programs, and a heavy and light loads on my
processor as well. In an effort to repoduce the bug I also tried to alter the
settings as well, such as JPEG at different settings instead of loss-less with
no success.  I also tried the Toolbar button as well as via the drop down menu
with no difference in outcome.

I used Acrobat Reader 9.1.0 to view the PDFs
OOo-dev 3.2.0 DEVm56 (build:9419)
Windows Vista SP1

Dear WG,

I went to my friend's office and use her XP PC to install OOo 3.11 English
version and then export to pdf again, it seems those stripes still alive.
File had uploaded to FTP server.
