Hi Rob,

I was asked to email a screenshot of my patch for the color charts to
this maillist.

Thanks for the screenshot Hillar added to the wiki:

I have attached a screenshot. This is the screen-shot of the
color-chats, that can be found in the options-sceen (Tools->Options)

And many thanks for this explanation (and the following) too!

What I have added are the Add- and Remove-buttons, to add and remove a
color chart.
When adding it will add a black color chart with the number 1 higher as
the last one created.
When removing it will remove the selected item or when none is selected
it will remove the last.

So you provide additional default colors for charts with more than 12 colors.

Is this the right use case?

Rob, I like your way to allow the user to chose without being trapped in a bunch of new features they need to understand before.

Just one question, as I can't try the feature by myself:

Do you provide the same confirmation window as the standard color selector in Options - LibreOffice - Colors when removing a color:
"Do you want to delete the color?"

Or is it different like "Do you want to remove the color from the default colors?"

I can see neither of them in the patch you posted on the dev list (but I'm not a developer, so I might be wrong).

Besides from this point I think your patch allows the user to be more flexible with large charts - especially with pie charts, where 12 different colors can lead to repeated colors leading to the opinion that the data showing the same color should be related.

Thanks for improving this situation!

Best regards
