Re: [libreoffice-users] Transparency issue saving to .doc/docx


The problem is to make the document work in the MS Office Writer package by the user.

I wanted to give him the option to edit the text part of the flier instead of me doing the edits and then send back to him a PDF, the more edits.

If he could do the edits himself, it would be easier on both of us.  Time constraints can get into the way for the emailing back and forth for the needed edits. He needed the flier out in the next couple of days, to get the printer to have it ready in time to get it out for over a week before the event happens.

I cut my teeth with Corel Draw, but not have Inkscape on both my Ubuntu and Windows systems.  He would not have access to it.

If I cannot do it in LO, or do not know how, I switch to Inkscape and maybe GIMP.  As for plain SVG formats, I have no way to know if MSO can handle it the way I need it to be done.

You may want to look into creating a SVG incorporating underlying text with overlay images.

Suggest you look at Inkscape for creating a _plain_ (not Inkscape) SVG.  https://inkscape.org/

The problem is it gets up when I save it back to DOCX or DOC.  I have 2 transparent background images that overlap each other to solve a visual need.  The problem is half the time the images lose their transparent backgrounds and cover up the underlying text.

They are logo and a high def images that do not work well to break up and then realign them in some way to into a odd shaped space. It would be very hard to cut up the images so their borders are wavy and curved to match the free spaces.


2. Transparency

Consider breaking the image up, where the resulting pieces won't overlay
your text. That is, instead of leaving a border image with text appearing
inside it, place the border as multiple images, so that no text can "fall
behind" because the images never overlay.  This will require exporting the
image and cutting it, or placing the image multiple times and cropping it.
If you go the route of cropping the image within LO Write/MS Word, the
resulting document gets large and lags performance.
