I have been working on the editing of the color list shown to the users
when changing the color of the text, border, etc., and in the
The first part of the list, is the standard colors, Then my work starts.
First - the Branded colors from the Branding page [unless it was
Second - the newly created/edited shading for some basic colors - from
dark to tinted-off-white. Reds, Blues, Light Blues, Yellows, Greens,
After that, there is a "work in progress" section where named colors are
grouped together by color names and their "shades" of a "standard color"
- i.e. the whites and off whites, the blue-ish colors, the yellows, the
different reds, and other groups of named fonts like Turquoise, Gold,
Goldenrod, Brown, Orange, Violet, Pink, etc., etc..
Then there is a list of colors that have no names associated with them,
and I am not making some up, so their names are listed as the RGB Hex code.
Then there are some more colors, and more colors.
So far, the current list has been edited to over 2,300 colors, instead
of the basic ones that came with the "default" install of LibreOffice.
For those who want to use this list of colors, you need to search the LO
config folders for "standard.soc". Rename it as the
"standard.soc--original-one.txt" and rename the new one as "standard.soc".
As I stated, the middle part is a "work in progress" to sort the named
colors by color hue withing the color blocks, instead of the alphabetize
name sorting. That alpha sort would place Dark Gold far from Gold and
other names like that.
Yes, there are some colors repeated in the list, but if the repeated
color is in a sequence of colors, then it stays in that sequence. There
may be some colors that are in error with the name listed with a "wrong
color" - like green27 shown as black - that my still need repairing, but
I fixed all of the ones I could find. The named colors came from
various color lists, so if Turquoise is slightly off whay you though it
should be, then maybe the Turquoise 1 or 3 type of color is what you are
use to. If there were the same color name, but different RGBs, I just
added "1" or "a" to the second one.
So let me know what you think. Be kind with your remarks, please. I am
doing this between bouts of heavy pain and "health issues". I am
spending most of my usable "computer time" supporting LO and doing
things like making a better color list for the LO users.
