Field Shadings on Collabora CODE

I’m using the Collabora Online Development Edition (CODE) and I’m not able to set the Field Shadings:

Here is a comparation between libreoffice and CODE:

This docs from Collabora office states the following:

To display or hide field highlighting in a document, choose View - Field Shadings. To permanently disable this feature, choose Tools - Options - Collabora Office - Application Colours, and clear the check box in front of Field shadings.

But the Collabora CODE version doesn’t have this options. There is any way to enable the Field Shadings?

This is a little embarrassing, but I see now my mistake: There are 3 version of Collabora.

  • Collabora Online
  • Collabora Office
  • Collabora CODE

Collabora Online and CODE are identical in terms of features. The difference is licensing, support and stability.

Collabora Office is the desktop version. And I was reading the Office documentation but trying to find the options in the CODE/Online versions.

So, at this moment, there is no way to configure shading in the fields. And the default behavior is no shading at all.

I have commented in the GitHub issue:
