Hi Adrian,

If this is about the default background colour for documents as you view
them, are aware of the existing options?
See Tools > Options > Application colors > Document background: you can
change the document background to basically any RGB colour.
This affects how the document background is rendered on your PC; other
users will still get the default background (usually white).
(For changing the actual background colour, i.e. as a property of the
document itself, you need to go through Format > Page > etc.)

I assume that most users would want to keep white as the default
document background.

Best regards,

Christophe Strobbe

Re:Universal Design and changing the defaults to comply with real
universal design, especially with regards to colour background.


Dear Libre Office,

This is one of my areas of interest.

The default background colour needs to change to something like 40% gray.
With sans serif fonts, of course.

Best wishes,

Adrian Whyatt
