Description fransvc 2005-04-15 12:12:41 UTC
Open a new presentation.
Background set to black
Add text with shadow.
Shadow not visible because the color of shadow is not selectable.

Presentions imported from Powerpoint are shown without shadow.

Add option to select shadowcolor

This is no regression as we had this behaviour in draw and impress since the
time beeing, so I retarget to OOo later.

Also vcl currently only supports black and light grey shadow color, depending on
the backgrounds luminance.

To add this feature (oh I also changed issue type to feature) we would need new
ui, new core and a file format enhancement. And we need this for all 5 applications.

@CL->FL: Please provide UI spec. as soon as this has a priority. I-Team should
consist of ui developers from the different applications and also mib to enhance
the file format.

Assigned to correct owner requirements.
Comment 8 pcrichton 2009-09-19 03:59:50 UTC
This has been a design DEFECT (not a feature enhancement) since before 2004. 
There have been multiple reports of this and similarly related design
deficiency: 32257, 34516, 36144, 37147, 47519 (this report), 51710.

There should be a single UI across all OOo applications controlling all font
attributes including the control of the font shadow (color, depth, angle).

I want it fixed in Writer, rather than Impress, but hought I'd vote here anyway.
