There is an option to include "user defined" colors. I know this, since
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 color
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 1 #FF83FA
ORCHID 2 #EE7AE9
ORCHID 3 #CD69C9
ORCHID 4 #8B4789
PAPAYA WHIP #FFEFD5
PEACHPUFF 1 #FFDAB9
PEACHPUFF 2 #EECBAD
PEACHPUFF 3 #CDAF95
PEACHPUFF 4 #8B7765
PINK 1 #FFB5C5
PINK 2 #EEA9B8
PINK 3 #CD919E
PINK 4 #8B636C
PLUM 1 #FFBBFF
PLUM 2 #EEAEEE
PLUM 3 #CD96CD
PLUM 4 #8B668B
POWDER BLUE #B0E0E6
This is a 5 page list of names and colors - with 100 different Gray levels.

Why are our color options (for font color, highlight, table
background, etc.) so limited?
I confess, I know diddley about C++, but how hard would it be to get a
or some other means of choosing colors, say like available in Tk
(tkinter, tcl/tk, etc.
like shown here: http://zetcode.com/gui/tkinter/dialogs/ You can even
enter a hexcode.)
that would give us broader options?
Should I make a feature request?
Has nobody else never thought of this?
Or am I missing something, and we have broader options than I think
(we have 112 colors to choose from for fonts, 6 of which are white).
Maybe a plugin using tcl/tk or python/tkinter wouldn't be too hard to
(I've played with tcl/tk and python/tkinter, but never trying to make
to work with a larger project as a plugin, so not sure how that works).
I love my LO (and OOo before it), but this has long occured to me as a
glaring oversight, or something.
Frankly, having not used any proprietary office suite for more than 5
minutes in the past decade,
I don't know what options they have for such features, but it seems to
it would be better to have more flexibility in this regard, and it
shouldn't be overly complex
to implement (unless I'm sorely mistaken).
