Description s 2014-05-09 15:46:08 UTC
In v4.0.1 I was able to set the text to white and add a black shadow effect (over a red background) via the Shadow checkbox in Format -> Character -> Font Effects.

After upgrading to v4.1.0, opening the same ODG file created under v4.0.1, the shadow color is the same as the font color, which makes the text look like a sloppy mess, not shadowed text.

I tried adjusting the color in both the Format -> Character -> Font Effects dialog and also from the Font Color tool in the toolbar.  Both of those have the effect of changing the text and the shadow to the new color, not differentiating the color of the text and shadow.

Additional note - In v4.0.1 it would have been nice to be able to select the color for the shadow rather than just black.  That is, in my case where I have white text on a red background, it would have liked to be able to select a dark red color for the shadow, rather than a basic black shadow.  Would be great if a feature like that could be worked in with the bug fix.

Thanks for all the great work you folks do on OpenOffice.

NOT reproducible with document from AOO 4.0.0 and "AOO 4.1.0 Release – German UI / German locale [AOO410m18(Build:9764)  -   Rev. 1589052 2014-04-22 11:43:54]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", “historic” 4. User Profile used for all predecessor versions 

What is "red background"? Area? Page? Shape? 
Please attach a sample document!

The fix for the dupe is in 4.1.1 already.
