Description webmaster 2006-03-17 22:39:49 UTC
Dear OOo Developers,

OpenOffice is becoming quite a potent Office Suite, but there is one thing which
holds its productivity back - Rendering Quality. Often lines outline boxes will
disappear until you scroll down and back up, or sometimes only if you change the
zoom, or curved lines with be extremely jagged (in ANY type of document). Is it
possible that the entire display (including images, word-art and custom shapes)
be anti-aliased? Perhaps this would also speed up Presentation animations, and
almost definately would make them more attractive to look at.

Kind Regards,

NOTE: I would not be surprised if there is already an issue open for this, but I
could not find one.

@ sba: Is this something for you? Any knowledge about this?
Comment 2 stefan.baltzer 2006-04-05 10:53:45 UTC
SBA: There may be SEVERAL issues because you describe SEVERAL different problems.
You talk about anti-aliasing as well as repaint errors...

The basic way of issues "Make everything better" is geting closed.

Please focus on ONE problem and give a reproducible description
One Problem != ONE issue. It only wors this way.

A screenshot and a bugdoc EACH look like the right way for your problems.
Set to Worksforme until further details are given.
Please comment.
Comment 3 webmaster 2006-04-15 00:46:01 UTC
Hmmm... I suppose it was a general bug report, and I cannot really think of
making it simpler. I just wanted all of the workspaces to be anti-aliased. Is
this too general for a bug report?

Kind Regards,

Comment 5 webmaster 2006-04-15 00:50:50 UTC
Sorry, I thought that I had better make it clear too: the glitch at the bottom
right of the screen was due to another aplication, not OpenOffice.

Kind Regards (again),
Comment 6 webmaster 2006-04-17 23:24:37 UTC
I hope you don't mind, but since I have restated the issue in terms of a now
simplified issue, I have reopened the issue.

If I have been wrong to do so, please let me know, and close the bug issue.

Kind Regards,

HDU->AW: as far as I know you are working on AA for OOo-graphics like polygons
etc. I suggest to track the status of this project in this issue if there is no
other issue for this yet...
Comment 8 lohmaier 2006-06-24 22:59:49 UTC
there are other issues... e.g. issue 28526

Note that with cairo support impress has nice antialiasing during slideshow, but
not while editing. Maybe cairo could be used throughout?
Comment 9 Armin Le Grand 2006-07-27 16:08:26 UTC
AW: We are working in that direction, but it will take a while. THB can tell You
Comment 10 thb 2006-07-27 16:28:21 UTC
guys, you're welcome ;-)

Yes, indeed, there's work underway to have at least Draw/Impress render via
canvas also during edit mode. The foundations for that are lain in CWS aw033,
and yours faithfully is currently prototyping a canvas backend for that.
Timeline: no idea, something around OOo3. The remaining apps (calc, writer,
math): after Draw/Impress is done, so, after OOo3.
Comment 11 webmaster 2006-07-28 06:56:18 UTC
Thankyou very much, THB! I have eagerly awaited work on this for a long while,
and am delighted that we will be seeing it before long.

I understand the focus on draw and impress, but would very much like to see it
ASAP in the other modules also.


Kind Regards,

Isn't this issue being fixed in OpenOffice 3.1? 
Im mean CWS aw033 and the subsequent CWS that aim to introduce AA in the
OpenOffice Canvas...
Comment 13 Armin Le Grand 2009-03-16 16:09:21 UTC
AW: Not necessarily. Canvas (used in presentation mode) and DrawingLayer (used
in EditMode) are two different things (there are already plans to put those
together, be assured :-)). HTH!
