I've found what I think is a regression with the rotary control for text direction.

1. Open a new spreadsheet
2. Choose Format->Cells...
3. Select Alignment tab
4. Rotate the text orientation dial either with the mouse or using the spinner next to the angle in numbers.
5. Observe a darkening of the edge of the rotary control.

Having typed the above I checked the other occurrence of this control in the X-axis options for charts and it displays the same darkening behaviour.

You have previously fixed this, so this may be a Yosemite regression, or it may be a retina display one. I don't have easy access to a non-OS X 10.10 machine, but can check it on a non-retina Mac next Monday.

I can reproduce this but only when using a Retina display so I suspect that image scaling is causing this. I will investigate and post when I have found a fix for this bug.

I think that I have fixed this bug. I found that this bug also occurs in OpenOffice and LibreOffice. The bug is caused by the OpenOffice code's shadowing of the text when you change the rotation so I disabled the shadowing.

Can you install one of the following test patches and tell us if the bug is fixed for you?:

NeoOffice 2014.6:

NeoOffice 2014.6 Free Edition:

NeoOffice 3.4.1:

I've installed the Test 4 patches for both NeoOffice 3.4.1 and 2014.6. The "cheap whore" effect is fixed in both.

Thanks,

Andy

FYI. I have included the fix for this drawing bug in NeoOffice 2014.7 which is available in Apple's Mac App Store.

I have also included the fix in NeoOffice 3.4.1 Patch 11 which can be downloaded from the NeoOffice patch download page.
