Bug Description

Binary package hint: openoffice.org

Screenshot attached. The tabs in Openoffice Writer 2.4 are low quality. This is the default Openoffice.org in Hardy. Tabs in any formatting window appear like this.

Thanks for your bug report. Can you explain what exactly the problem is? I am afraid that i do not understand...
Thanks in advance...

Take a look at the screenshot. You will see that the tabs are low-quality, and not the same as the rest of the text.

means they are working on it...

I'm not 100% certain but I think what you are talking about is due to the fact the font in the tabs is bold and greyed out which appears to look odd with antialiasing. Or is there something else causing this problem?

I'm not entirely sure about that one, but everything is on default settings, as I haven't changed anything, so I would assume other people suffer this issue as well.

I have the same problem. I thought it had something to do with the rendering of the dialog itself, which is (i assume) not a native gtk-dialog. (See my post may 27)

Chris Cheney (ccheney) wrote :

Yes they look different than regular gtk/gnome tabs, which might be changed with the VCL update. I'll leave this bug open for now.
