Description Regina Henschel 2014-06-26 19:00:36 UTC
Start a new Writer document.
Insert a table.
Open table property dialog, goto tab "Background"
Select as "Color" for "Cell", select a color, OK.

Expected behavior: The cell, where the cursor is, becomes colored.
Seen behavior: Nothing happens.

If you open a file generated with AOO4.1, cells with background are shown correctly. If you use Table > AutoFormat, the colors are applied correctly.

The table property dialog still has the only tab "Background" in contrast to all the other dialogs, where "Background" were replaced by "Area" and "Transparency". Therefore I guess, that this dialog has been overseen.

Prepared a solution, checked with data exchange to older versions and MS formats. Problem was that table fill handling was not correctly identified as not yet supporting DrawingLayer FillStyles. Added needed stuff to support that.

Okay, done.
