LO V7.- series Form Format Page Gradient Issue

Win10 LO 7.2.x HSQL 2.6


If a forms background is enhanced by adding a gradient and the form already has coloured buttons, subsequent form design changes such as adding new buttons or simply switching macros between events will result in changes to the format of some or all pre existing buttons.

These changes seem to be irreversible. Anyone else come across this weird behaviour? Any known workaround other then scrapping the form. Attached screendump.

Thanks for any hint

Have a look at Tools → Options → LibreOffice → View → Graphics Output. Could be it has something to do with Skia. I haven’t any Windows system so I never got such a behavior.

Thank you for your swift response Robert however skia is not the culprit as turned off.


See no problem with Skia on or off:

Tried various actions. No issues with any.
