Well, if I knew were the color listing is stored, i.e. the user defined
colors, I would see about making a file or something that would have all
of the colors that are listed on my linked PDF file.

These names and their matching hex codes were part of a set of web page
color definitions.  I have a number of PDF files with the list of names
and hex codes listed in the defined colors, where each PDF file has a
different background color.  This helped me with defining a palette of
colors to use for a web page based on what looks good and not good with
the defined background image or color.  What looks good with a white
background may not look good with an "off white" one that leans toward a
slight blue shade of white.

So if someone could take this list of color names and color hex codes
and add them to the "color table" or make a second table of colors for
us to use.

In the "Options / LibreOffice / Colors" dialog, the color table is
labeled "Table : standard".  This seems to indicate that you can change
the "table" to something that is "not standard" or "user defined".  The
colors are defined by RGB "Decimal" instead of Hex, but it can be easy
to change Hex to Decimal. 

So, is there a way to change the "Table : standard" to "Table : user
defined" or a way to import a set of color names and RGB code?  Of are
you required to type in 20 or 40 of these manually?

I ask this, since I had a number of user defined colors that I typed in
a number of months ago and none of them were saved from the 3.6.5[?]
version and included with the 4.0.x version.  If I add them to the list
this week, will I have to retype them in when I finally go to 4.1.4 or .5?

It would be nice to have all of these user defined colors in some config
file that I can save and edit, that can be used in the next version or
line of LO, without needing all my user defined colors needing to be
retyped.  Actually, I did not give the colors names, just listed their
Hex code as the color names. 

YES, having a color wheel would be nice for a color picker, but for
those that have defined text colors, like our official brochure's
defined green text color, we need an easy way to add and edit these user
defined colors and a way to make sure these colors are listed in each
version of LO we install, like going from 4.0.6 to 4.1.5 and still have
the colors available to use.

Hi :)  
I'm glad to hear we have a wider range of colours than i thought.  

I'd really like to see a colour-wheel and hex input but the thing i
miss most is a pipette to grab colour from anywhere on the screen.
 Gimp has one and i miss it in Draw.  I've always assumed it was just
waiting for someone to post a bug-report about.  
Regards from
Tom :)

    There is an option to include "user defined" colors.  I know this,
    I had to do it for the text color of the "official" brochure we were
    working on many months ago.

    Tools / Options / LibreOffice / Colors

    There are options for Add, Modify, Edit, and Delete colors in the

    So you can always add a new color to the list, and name it
    whatever you
    wish it to be.

    Yes, there are a low number of predefined colors, but I bet if someone
    would give a list of names and Hex codes for all of these "non-listed
    colors" then maybe they could be added to our font color selection.

    I assume you want colors like this:

    ORANGE 1 #FFA500
    ORANGE 2 #EE9A00
    ORANGE 3 CD8500
    ORANGE 4 #8B5A00
    ORANGE RED 1 #FF4500
    ORANGE RED 2 #EE4000
    ORANGE RED 3 #CD3700
    ORANGE RED 4 #8B2500
    ORCHID #DA70D6
    ORCHID 1 #FF83FA
    ORCHID 2 #EE7AE9
    ORCHID 3 #CD69C9
    ORCHID 4 #8B4789
    PEACHPUFF 4 #8B7765
    PINK 1 #FFB5C5
    PINK 2 #EEA9B8
    PINK 3 #CD919E
    PINK 4 #8B636C
    PLUM 3 #CD96CD
    PLUM 4 #8B668B

    This is a 5 page list of names and colors - with 100 different
    Gray levels.
