Hi :)
Doesn't matter how old some of those things are.  Sun tried to minimise on
development in order to keep the product more stable.  LibreOffice develops

So i think a lot of these long-running issues are likely to get dealt with
unless they are simply forgotten.  So bumping such requests that are over 3
years old might grab some devs attention.  I wonder if this one would be an
"Easy Hack"?
Regards from
Tom :)

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


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 other

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 :(

Kind regards
