Betreff: Re: [libreoffice-design] Re: "LibreColour" palettes for LibreOffice

A palette of 16.7 million colors  is a bit too many to scroll and pick from, mind numbing to

It makes a very good test of one's ability to discriminate between
shades that are very closely related.

That may be so, but that is not the purpose of an office suite. Even professional graphics 
programmes are smart enough to offer their users a limited selection of colours in their palettes. 
If another shade is required, it can be created, no matter whether the programme is called 
Photoshop or LibreOffice.

Also, 16+ million colours is an unnecessary drain on memory resources and might cause crashes on 
some computers.
