I took several lists and converted them outside the main file and then added them. Sometimes certain colors in a color sequence should be kept, even if it is a repeat. But I will look at each case.

For years i have been wondering why the colour selection was so pitiful. I've been using quite a long work-around or just putting up with it.

I took the original file and added the LO branding colors, and decided to go from there. With the help from a fellow user, added some colors to that list from some I had and some he had. I added gray and 99 different shades of it - i.e. 1% to 99%. At that point, I still wanted more. I found colors like Gold, Silver, Bronze, Brass, etc. and added them in. Then I added the colors from a set of color tables where they took one color and kept lightening it up 6 times, for a total of 7 color blocks. There were 7 colors per table making each one 77 colors. This added 462 colors to the color blocks you see. So now, I have 2525 color blocks, if my count is correct. For Ubuntu users, you have to look into the hidden dot folders to find the "standard.soc" file. ".config/libreoffice/4/user/config" where it is on other systems, I do not know. I have not added it to my Windows systems, yet, but will find the file later. So here is the download file link. It should work fine, but I am still new at using the "ownCloud" system. https://owncloud.documentfoundation.org/Common/QA/New-Colors/stan dard.soc--jan-19--10_26am---2525-color-blocks.txt>>>Total colors in that file : 2525 Total unique colors in that file: 2366 The following colors are named more than two times: (color #0000 is found 6 times, color #000080 is found 4 times, etc) # color 6 000000 4 000080 3 0066cc 3 008080 3 00cccc 3 333333 3 666666 4 800080 3 808000 3 999999 3 b3b3b3 3 c0c0c0 3 cccccc 3 ff0000 3 ff00ff 3 ff4500 4 ff9966 5 ffff66 3 ffffffOkay, I downloaded the file to my HD. It is a .txt file. I used locate to find the standard.soc file on my machine. It is in .xml format. I moved the original standard.soc file to standard.soc.old. I copied the standard.soc--jan-19--10_26am---2525-color-blocks.txt to the same location and renamed it standard.soc. It's in html file. I guess I should get to the question now.config
What am I supposed to do with that file?
1. First find where standard.soc is. [openSUSE 13.1 it is /home/user name/.config/libreoffice/4-suse/ 2. Rename standard.soc or backup some. 3. rename the new file (downloaded link mentioned) and then move it into the folder where you found the original version. 4. Check permissions CODE ---------- -rw-r--r-- 1 username users 122649 Jan 13 17:39 .config/libreoffice/4- suse/user/config/standard.soc ---------- 5. open writer and see if the new list of colors appear. Should appear in writer when you click the font color, highlight color or background color. Also should be in CALC and Draw. Hope this helps.
