Hi Mike,

I forward your message to the ML. As you may know we will have better user
palette management in 5.3. Meaning you can add colors in the area style
dialog to the newly introduced 'custom palette'. The former palette
management at Tools > Options > Color has been removed. Also document
colors will work now.
Saying that it doesn't contradicts any of your comments.

What is your position about the default set of palettes? Should we
limit the number of palettes, have also a manageable size in terms of
<50 colors (this is a very arbitrary number), postulate elaborated
color names?

As a reasonably ordinary user of colour, I've been frustrated by the
current limitations and look forward to the improvements in 5.3. From my
perspective, the number of colours in the current palette is not a problem,
though the naming is, being opaque and inconsistent. I want a single
palette that covers all my tasks, from simple wp to design and web work. A
basic palette of approx 40 colours won't be sufficient for that. So,
although I can see a case for a carefully designed default basic palette,
it's important for LO to ship a full palette and make it easy to select a
different palette from all the apps.
To take things a step further, are you focussing on delivering better
palettes or on delivering a better colour service? The latter, implying eg
carefully constructed documentation, is what would help to set LO apart.
