Description angel.tsankov 2010-06-23 11:44:10 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.4.4) 
OS:                Linux

It seems that I cannot unset the background color in the normal text style for "Alert" and "Region Marker" and I cannot make errors not underlined -- when I close and reopen the configuration dialog these elements are reset to their defaults.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the normal text styles configuration dialog
2. Unset the background for "Alert"
3. Press "Apply", close and re-open the configuration dialog

Actual Results:  
The changes are lost

Expected Results:  
The changes should be preserved, shouldn't they?

Happens with kate 3.4.4.

This bug also affects third party Latex editor Kile, which is using Kate as text editing component. 

Same symptoms : 
In Settings/Editors/Fonts & Colors :
 * Right-click on a background color (that was previously set to some color) and select "Unset Background Color". It seems to work
 * but as soon as the Dialog is accepted, there is no change in the Text Editor colors
 * and reopening the Settings dialog shows that changes were lost.

Kile : 2.0.85 for KDE 4.4.5 (Ubuntu 10.4)
I unfortunately cannot test a more recent version of KDE.

Either it has been fixed and the bug should be closed, or it should be CONFIRMED !

This seems to work for me. Can you please try again?

fix bug 242576: cannot unset background colors

Anders already fixed this issue already in bug #97400 in January 2005.
In October 2005 Hamish overwrote this again accidently. Hence, this
bug was back for 6 years now. Finally, fix it again.
