Hi all,

I just set a dudle for this topic. You can vote here :

I would like to emphasize that regarding options a) and b) :
- they are "localized" (no need to modify far apart sections of code or distant functionnalities) - they belong to the scope of LibreOffice (it's not like asking some feature that has nothing to do with the goal of LO) - if one or both is/are chosen, we will still need to have a carefuly chosen default option
(either some hard-coded value or the color adapting to selection color).

Best regards,

Hi Milan, all

I think that adding the option to allow the user to select a colour would
require only to add a new entry in the Options dialog (under LibreOffice
Appearance > Custom colours > General) named Non-printing characters.
Please, no. The options dialog is already crowded enough with obscure
options. If blue is hard to see for some users, we need to find a better
color, period. You cannot expect users who find it hard to see the light
blue to find out that an option exists buried somewhere in the options,
only a few experts will; and the bulk of users will think LibreOffice is
a bad program.
The point here is: the non-printing characters are already set to light blue
in 4.3 . Someone already did that

LibreOffice is NOT a democracy so setting up a vote for another colour won't
have any results unless someone actually codes it. But coding another colour
without consulting or the agreement of the developer who introduced the
change would be a very BAD attitude...

Unless we can convince the author that light blue is not a good option it
WILL be set to light blue on the next version.

Personally I would prefer to have an OPTION, than to have some other
hard-coded colour.

Just my 2 cents.
