Description nderezic 2004-02-05 13:39:48 UTC
When applying a new color (i.e. red) to an underlined text, the color of the 
line also changes (to red), but only if the first underlined character and the 
first collored character are the same (the line AND the new color start at the 
same character). Althoug the new color is applyed only to the first few 
underlined characters (red), which leaves all rest of the underlined 
characters uncolored, the color of the line is the same (red) to the end of 
the underlined block.

Comment 5 velic 2005-02-04 03:01:28 UTC
Successfully replicated on WinXP SP2 OOo 1.1.4.  The underline takes on the 
colour of the first character in the line.  Consequently, if we have 3 words 
of the same colour next to each other underlined with a single line, changing 
the colour of the middle word does not change the colour of the line 
underneath the middle word.  The bug seems to be absent from an earlier 
version of OO 1.0.2.

The problem still exists on Linux, 1.9.m95 and 1.9.m100.

Tested with OOo 2.0, WinXP.

- New Writer document.
- Type "dt" then press F3 to produce test text.
- Select four words and select Underline from toolbar.
- Change colour of first word (black>red), changes the underline colour for all
words to red.
- However, if applying Underline through 'Character'>'Font Effects', you may
specify the colour of the underline to remove this problem; or when selecting
Underline 'individual words', again the problem is solved.

I would suggest this actually functions as designed and is not a bug.
->'nderezic', how would you like to see this function enhanced? What would you
consider to be a more correct behaviour?
