Still, it would be better to have all the color options that Draw and
Impress has available for Writer's text colors. It would be nice to
have the option to create a custom palette and switch from the "Table :
standard" for font colors to ": user defined" or some other set of colors.
There is only one color palette active. When you have changed the
palette or added colors in a Writer document by the way using a dummy
draw object as I have described, then these new colors are not only
available for drawings but for text color and background too.
As I stated before, the "official brochure", that was developed months
ago, had defined the font names and specific color[s] of the text. I
had to add that color, manually, to my text color table. Yet, when I
went to the 4.0.x line, the added colors were not carried over to the
4.0.x version. So I would have to re-enter the colors into the "table"
When you have added them, then they are in the file "standard.soc" of
your old LO user directory. You would only need to copy that file to the
new version to get the colors.
Maybe having a user-defined color table would be a good thing.
Color tables are always user-defined, they belong to the personal directory.
having the ability to choose between color tables for font and
background colors would be a feature that would work for users like me.
Whatever way it is done, we could use a better way for the user to add
user-defined colors to LO so the user would have access to them for any
document type [Writer, Calc, Draw, Impress] that is being created for
themselves or their company.
There are some ways to add a own new color to the standard palette. The
real problem is to use other palettes and to use colors you get from
Their should not be any problem in a company, because the admin can
deploy the palette with the additional company colors as 'standard.soc'
to all LO user directories.
But you are right, color handling needs improvement. And when you search
in AOO Bugzilla, you will find a lot of enhancement requests, some nine
years old :(
