Can you please try reproducing this problem with the official openoffice.org at http://openoffice.org/ then report this bug upstream at http://www.openoffice.org/issues/query.cgi as the problem is hard for me to reproduce it would be better if you worked with the OpenOffice.org developers directly on this problem. After reporting the problem in their bugtracker please attach the bug number to this bug report. Thanks!

In the next version of New Wave (0.8.1) I will provide a graphical tool (New Wave Configurator) for turning on a hack to make the menus readable for those that use this application a lot but the default behavior of the theme will not adopt this hack.

Chris, have you found some kind of solution for those steppers and the menubars because I see the bugs are triaged. Also if they are fixed soon when they will arrive in Ubuntu mainstream?

No, it is marked as triaged because it has been sent to the upstream OOo developers.

I added some comments to the upstream bug a few days ago; somehow, they don't seem to have been copied to here. When using the latest elementary bzr, this bug still manifests itself (and this in OO.o 3.2.0 on Lucid). See http://www.openoffice.org/nonav/issues/showattachment.cgi/70575/noscrollbars.png for a screenshot.

I have no clue how to use upstream OO.o bug tracker, but I've added some comments there and the issue needs to be re-opened.

Using latest egtk (https://launchpad.net/egtk ) bzr and OO.o 3.2.1 on Maverick, this issue still exists.

There are no new official OpenOffice.org releases in Ubuntu packaging anymore => Won't Fix

If the problem persists, please mark this bug as "also affects project Libreoffice" or "also affects distribution Libreoffice (Ubuntu)" if that has not happened already.

Please leave references to upstream OpenOffice.org bugs in place to allow cross pollination.
