I'm trying to create a new banner for a website that I'm webmaster for.

I've had a play in Draw, creating a banner that is 22X2.9 cm with a nice gradient background, and the main text with shadows, etc. The problem is that when I look at the banner in Firefox, my nice green gradient has morphed into a solid black background.

Open SuSE 13.2 -- LibreOffice Version: Build ID: 430m0(Build:2) (all English, though, it being Australia, I use the UK dictionaries and a US keyboard)

I'd attach the file but I lack the requisite karma So these links should work: The vector graphic version

lVFMC-banner.odg The original LibreOffice Draw file

In the test I did, apparently when exported to gif, it has no distortion in the image, but for svg it has.

Simple mistake. For some reason your .ODG has both "None" and "Gradient" selected as the page's background (Format > Page Properties...). I clicked on "None" to deactivate it and exported to .SVG and lo and behold it works in Firefox AND in Chrome.

BTW, @Don_from_Au , that's a pretty old version of LO. Any reason for not upgrading?

When the question was posted, it wasn't that old ;-)

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Mike, I hadn't even noticed! It was up on the front page so I had a look. Poor guy...he probably figured it out for himself FOUR YEARS AGO!!
