Subject [Bug 120539] Gradient of type 'Square' is not always square
Date Mon, 13 Aug 2012 16:18:31 GMT

--- Comment #3 from Regina Henschel <> ---
OOo 3.2 has real squares, OOo3.2 is not very old. Step width is equal even if
the outer shape is rectangle or oval, so that some regions have no gradient.

Ellipsoid and Rectangle uses equal step width too, therefore we get the long
line in the middle, because equal steps width do not lead to similarity. So the
essential difference between type "Square" and "Rectangle" would be, that the
blending is done with similarity in type "Square" and with equal step width in
type "Rectangle".

I'm not against a change for square. It now looks like the MS Office style
"Rectangular" and allows better import at least in the centric cases.

I think about, how to define such a gradient unambiguous. The help text has
nothing about it and the spec is not really understandable.

So I suggest that the issue here is not to change it back to true square, but
to make it work in all cases.
