Hi Zak,

What I need LibO to do is handle a "corporate" color palette easily. I have
managed to edit the relevant files (.GPL) for Inkscape and GIMP - but LibO
is proving more difficult.

A number of Google searches highlights that it does not appear
straightforward to "swop" or make default my corporate colour palette in

Well, it is possible... not necessarily straightforward, though.

In your home folder there's a configuration folder, on Linux (and
presumably Mac) that's
".libreoffice" (LibO 3.3, 3.4), or ".config/libreoffice" (Libo 3.5+),
on Windows Vista and up that is in "AppData\Roaming\libreoffice".
Within this folder, navigate to "3/user/config" and find standard.soc.

standard.soc is the palette file which you will want replace.
Apparently, there's a tool to convert palette formats [1], such as
from .gpl to .soc. Naturally, you can also replace all the colors
inside LibreOffice itself first and then copy standard.soc to other
PCs. Does that help for the moment?

I'm "power user" technical but not coding level technical - and I would like
to support developing this - how would I go about it?

You might have seen our colour handling proposal... which you can
still add another proposal to:
