Export to HTML not saving font color in calc


When I export to HTML, all fonts are in black regardless of what they show up in my spreadsheet

This is what it looks like in calc:

This is what it looks like once exported:

It also does not matter what color font I use, it always just ends up exporting in black.

I’ve checked that convert to greyscale is not enabled, what else could be doing this?

I also had version 7.04 on this same laptop, but it did the same thing, so I tried downgrading to the version that was on my old laptop (where it still works fine) but even after downgrading to the same version, it still does not work.

Running in safe mode seems to give the same issue, where font color is not exported to the html file

Can’t confirm on

You should add more technical details of your operating system and LibreOffice version and you may want to test using the following procedure, whether your LibreOffice user profile could cause the issue:

Test whether LibreOffice user profile is causing the issue:

Does this happen for all files (even new ones) or for a specific file only? If it the latter - could you upload?
