Unable to fill objects different from rectangles with bitmap patterns in the LO writer
Last modified: 2017-07-11 16:55:50 EDT
Description of problem:
Start the LO writer. Insert some round object (not a rectangle or square!!!) like a circle. Then select this object and edit the area properties: area->bitmap and select a bitmap pattern. Then the object will be covered by a rectangle (or square) containing this pattern. The primary shape is almost lost.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open a LO writer document
2.Insert a circle at some position
3.Change the area properties by selecting some bitmap pattern
4. Say OK,
The shape is covered by a rectangle filled with this bitmap pattern
Only the original object is filled with the pattern
Seems to dependend from the desktop environment in which LO is running: happens on all gnome Desktops (gnome/xwayland, gnome/X11,gnome/classic), Mate, but not on LXDE.
Solved: By setting the option->view-> anti-aliasing to true, the filled objects now are presented correctly.
antialiasing is the default so turning off antialiasing reproduces the problem. I think in this case we have something mising or wrong in the cairo based svp/gtk3 backend
seems in this case we want to create a 1bit depth mask but are creating it as a 32bit one and things go downhill from there
