Using multicolor gradients in file markup
2023-09-22, 15:30–16:00 (Europe/Bucharest), Room 1

This presentation demonstrates usage examples for multicolor gradients, shows the connection to Microsoft Office formats and explains the markup in file as well as in gradient palette.

Armin Le Grand has implemented the "Multicolor Gradients" feature for LibreOffice 7.6. It was implemented mainly to improve interoperability with Microsoft Office. However, it also has its own value. At this point (June), there is no user interface yet. Nevertheless, you can use, create and modify such gradients. The talk shows how to do that. To understand the talk, you should know the "Gradient" and "Transparency" tabs in the "Area" dialog.
