I am working with a table that takes a color and then starts listing lighter shades of that color till it is a very light shade that my wife would have called off-white or nearly white shade of "such and such color".

see this image.
I have included these two "tables" to the color list.

As for the rest, well, there seems to be no real difference in the load time with the large color file or the smaller one. The "last color used" is needed for many purposes. I would like to see the color list for fonts and highlighted colors in Writer to be widened to more "columns" Also, maybe widen each color "cell" a bit more as well. But That is not up to me.

I hate "basic" color sets. It is like someone telling me I am limited to what they think I wand and need and not what I should use. LO has a color adding system, one at a time, at the end of the current list, but I like to see the colors in the list where I would like to put them.

Is it me or does this, as an interface, look like it's getting out of control.

Might I suggest it is time to allow
1) A default 4 rows of 8, a 32 basic color set.
2) Above that, rows of 8 of "Last Colors Used". "Last Colors Used" should be selectable in 'Defaults' to the multiples of 8 up to a maximum of 32 (or some number). 3) At the bottom a click to see "More Colors..." and borrow the 'Color Picker' from LibreOffice Draw. (Side Comment: still don't know why "Color Picker" isn't universally default with last used colors below in LibreOffice)

Tracking 32 colors for me is well into the "I'm getting lost" realm in a layout. I respectfully ask Kracked_P_P for input on this.

I think this might keep down the amount of load time involved.

The question of weather remembered "Last Colors Used" is universal or document only is interesting? Also, how it should be organized, by creation sequence or hue or saturation?

Is a good idea?

Did I send you a copyof the colour soc I use?
(The one that is 2.5 MB in size, not the one that is 2.x GB in size.

will that not make libreoffice a tiny bit slower?


Not a bit.

Actually, it might make it 1/100 of a second slower on startup, or something like that.

I see no difference at all.
EXCEPT deciding which color[s] I want to use for my text color or cell background.

Now there is a possibility of 16+ million colors but I was told, in a science program, that people cannot see that many colors or tell them apart. I would not want to deal with that anyways. There are a lot of colors that are out there that are useful to people. If you want to draw an image in Draw and you want shades of skin colors or different colors for fire or candle light, then you really need a better selection of colors than the default one. Yes you can add them, one by one, but it helps if you have those colors [or colors near to what you need] in your color chart/table/list.
