OO 4.2.0 problem Page Background

Rory O'Farrell
Using OpenOffice Writer 4.2.0, Rev. 1840700 (on Xubuntu 18.04.1) I am unable to add a page background - the Background tab does not respond. This is so whether I use /Format /Styles and Formatting /Pages, or /Format /Page.

I ran into this problem while trying to solve a user problem on Forum; it does not in any way affect my own personal work.

I have not OO 4.1.6 installed, so cannot check that.

Can you provide a screenshot where you see a "Background" tab in 4.2.0?
I can only find an "Area" tab and it is working as expected.

I tested on xubuntu 18.04.1 (64-bit) with:

AOO420m1(Build:9800)  -  Rev. 1841876
2018-09-25_10:23:26  -  Rev. 1841915

OO 4.2.0 problem Page Background

Rory O'Farrell
In reply to this post by Matthias Seidel
For information:

On a Windows XP machine (32 bit) I have installed AOO 4.2.0 (en-US) version 1842967.  The Page Format shows "Area" (not "Background", as on Linux 64 version) as a tab, and I can change a page background on the Windows version.  The crash in Impress, when selecting a Master Page, does not occur on that Windows version.

On my preferred machine, running AOO 4.2.0 (en-US) 2018-10-05_08:36:16 - Rev. 184287 on Xubuntu 18.04.1 64 bit I find the following differences from the Windows version.

1) Page Background tab in Linux is called Area tab in Windows
2) Page Background does not work in Writer in Linux (i.e., that tab is inactive).  Works OK (as Area tab) in Windows
3) Selecting Master Page sidebar in Impress Linux DEB 64 crashes OO.  Works OK in Windows.

Matthias Seidel tells me that his version of OO on Linux uses Area, not Page to apply the Page backgrounds.

The Page background problem also showed up on AOO 4.1.6 (linux DEB 64 version); others have reported the crash with Master Pages in Impress on that version.  I have not investigated the 4.1.6 version on a Windows machine.

Rory do you refer to this Issue
https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=127805.

Matthias has posted some crash analysis pointing to a function. I
reviewed the code tonight. Just read it and analyzed it. It looked fine
on first glance.

I think it could be an Binary Issue between FreeType 2.6.x and 2.8.x. I
guess it happened in 2.7.x because I had this issue before FOSDEM 2017,
and Arch Linux has used 2.7 at that time.

Yes, this is the same issue as far as Impress Master Pages is concerned on OO Linux DEB 64

There is the other issue in my posting that OO Linux 64 DEB 4.2.0 does not apply page backgrounds (and the minor issue of whether that tab should be called Page or Area across all operating systems)

I should stress that currently, for me doing my current work, these are not critical problems, but it would be good to have them sorted in the long run

Just to clarify:
The Page tab is still there, it is the Background tab that is (in 4.2.0)
replaced by Area.
No special build are used by me, just those from our buildbots.
I always do a clean install, that means everything from LO is purged.

For Impress/Master Pages see:
https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=127805

It is important to name the Linux version on which the crash occurs.
4.1.6 has no problems (regarding Master Pages) on Ubuntu 16.04 but
crashes on 18.04. My guess is that it is related to the different
FreeType versions (2.6.x vs. 2.8.x).

Yes, you are correct I meant the Background tab on the Page Style setting - I was doing too many things at once!

I have used the build from the buildbot, and get Background, not Page.
