some time ago Kracked_P_P--webmaster has asked about possibilities, how to add more colors to LO. While there should be possibilities, how to do that, my problem is quite opposite.

For me, there are too many colors to choose from. I am lost in the (for me too large) table of colors. For example, I do not know how to choose a color, which is the same as some text elsewhere. It is even not possible to compare the colors visually (color perception depends on neighborhood). So I have to try several times to hit the right one.

I even filed a bug on this back in the OOO times. Nothing has happened, so I found my way how to choose colors. However, in LO42 there is a new color table. A nice one, with sorted colors. For me it is completely useless.

I thing that common users like me need something very simple: a list of colors used in the document, the last (used or picked) color, and a "more" button).

A similar situation is with line thickness - we can specify any thickness in mm (or inces or whatever). I would prefer just a few steps between very thin and very thick plus user specified value. I've file a bug about this (, with dialog mockup to LO.

What do you think about this? - perhaps I am the only one who has this problem
