I believe I have found a bug in NeoOffice 3.1.1, including patch 1. When embedding a color Drawing in a Writer document the printed form of the document loses the color information. Reverting to NeoOffice 3.0.2 fixes this problem.
The attached files illustrate: a test file and two PDF's generated from the print dialog. The test file has a color embedded Drawing and the two PDF's show the output from 3.0.2 Patch 5 and 3.1.1 Patch 1, respectively. As far as I can tell all patch levels of 3.0.2 work correctly and no version of 3.1.1 does.
Problem exhibits itself on both Mac OS 10.5.8 (MacPro 3,1) and Mac OS 10.6.4 (MacBook6,1).

I think I have fixed this bug. The colors were actually being sent to the printer but the problem was that the position of the colored areas was wrong so the colors were being printed off the edge of the paper.
Can you install the following test patch and tell us if the bug is fixed for you?:
Correct. After I posted the test patch with the fix for your bug, I posted another test patch that includes small enhancement for printing in "brochure" mode for another user to test. To ensure that everyone is downloading the latest test patch, I redirect old test patches to the latest. In your case, a request for test patch 11 redirects to the lastest, test patch 13.
I presume I should roll back to 3.0.2 patch 5 until the fix is rolled into an official patch with a full regression test.
I would encourage you to keep using NeoOffice 3.1.1 with the test patch installed as code in the test patch that you have is what will be put in the next official patch at the end of this month.
Essentially, you and I are probably the only people that will have tested my fix so the more that you use the test patch, the surer we all will be that the bug is truly fixed and has no unintended side effects.
