[BUG] On shadow textbox frame

Sorry, I've just saw your answer.
In fact I have two bugs:

- The first one is about reading a "*.doc" (see the attached file SIMPLE_TEST.doc), which has the shadow in the foreground.

I resolve this by applying the following patch (Version 3.5.7):

 diff --git a/sw/source/filter/ww8/ww8par6.cxx b/sw/source/filter/ww8/ww8par6.cxx
index 1677207..796497a 100644
--- a/sw/source/filter/ww8/ww8par6.cxx
+++ b/sw/source/filter/ww8/ww8par6.cxx
@@ -2360,7 +2360,7 @@ bool SwWW8ImplReader::IsDropCap()
 bool SwWW8ImplReader::StartApo(const ApoTestResults &rApo,
     const WW8_TablePos *pTabPos)
-    if (0 == (pWFlyPara = ConstructApo(rApo, pTabPos)))
+    if (0 != (pWFlyPara = ConstructApo(rApo, pTabPos)))
         return false;
     // <WW8SwFlyPara> constructor has changed - new 4th parameter
I will put a new bug and the commit, but can you tell me if my patch will provoke any regressions?

- The second one is the bug you answered, I will look in paintfrm.cxx.

Thanks very much for your answers.

That really sounds like a bug in the Frame painting. I would start
looking at SwFlyFrm::Paint:
