Hello Kévin, all,

Thank you for the updates. Before I reply on your comments I like to propose an idea similar to 
Mirek's for the palette tab:
Multiple palettes for the ability to choose colors digitally, without moving any sliders or 
pointers. It helps users look at multiple colors at once and choose between them.

<Issa> New should be on the left and Old on the right.
       I don't really see why (for me, history (old) is on the left, future
(new) on the right) but it's done;

Because New is the more important one and the one that will be updated. I feel that it is natural 
for it to be there (it is even implemented that way in the color map).
Usually it's top/bottom for New/Old in most programs though. Maybe we should find a way to do that?

<Mirek> If we agree to have a gear button, it should really be a menu.
I'm not 100% sure that we need it for the first implementation, though.
<Issa> The theme creator dialog should be replaced with a drop down menu
for changing themes, possibly next to the theme colors label.
       I'm not sur about that : You do not change your theme so often, The
popover is a fast access tool. More of that, seeing the M$ theme creator
window [2], this could take a lot of place. Not sure it's a good idea
having such a big popover;

While I definitely prefer a drop down menu, if we are going with the icon we need to have a label 
next to it (theme options or something).

<Issa> The colors beneath the basic ones should be even to clear
confusion about the gap between the third and fourth rows (to show that
the third isn't the middle color).
       I don't really understand what you means there. Should the separation
between the first line and derivates be bigger ?

What I meant is that the number of color aside from the first should be an even number (2, 4, etc.) 
because the middle shade was already removed to the top. Something like this (lower numbers 
represent brighter colors):
---    //gap

-Wouldn't it be better if we use a color map/square for the HSL instead
of the wheel since it's already implemented and prettier in my opinion?
       Personally I prefer the wheel. Then I'm not sure what would be the good

Maybe we should have a voting then to see what most people think :)

- When using the standard colors as the default theme, what would appear
in the palette tab ?
       I think this shouldn't happen : the palette is there to present
majority of colors, the theme present colors that fit well together. The
default theme should be something else,that we will define. It have to
be pretty has lot of people (in M$ Office at least, since it's not
horrible) use the default one. But for me, the palette is fixed.

Fair enough. Maybe we can even use LibreOffice branding theme or Tango theme as the default.
