That was my surprise as well, which prompted my original post. I teach
at a local college as well as my church and always use slide
presentations for my classes. My Windows box is newer with a nice long
battery life for teaching a class without having to plug things in. My
Linux laptop is old and tired, so I tend to use the Windows machine more
often. However, for a reason I haven't yet figured out, it doesn't work
well with my church's Epson projector. The projector keeps resetting
itself in the middle of a presentation, so, I still use my Linux
computer to show my slide presentations at church.
I imagine the color palette situation on my Ubuntu box reflects the
history of my LO installations from Ubuntu over the years. Although I
am surprised that two palettes with the same name can exist in the
drop down lists.
What this means is that I create and edit my slides on my Windows
computer and then transfer them over to the Linux computer for showing
in church. Since I can never leave things alone, I am constantly doing
final editing on the Linux computer, which is how I discovered the
difference in color palettes. I use blue and red font coloring for
highlighting and I was surprised to find out that "Blue" on my Windows
LO installation is different than "Blue" on my Linux LO installation,
and that the "standard" palette on Windows LO doesn't include "Blue 4,"
which is what I use on Linux LO. The result is that colored text on a
slide created in Windows LO is a different shade than colored text on a
slide edited in Linux LO.
I have to believe that, having different color resources on the
different versions of LO would make life frustrating for people sharing
documents between Windows and Linux computers.
Part of me was wondering if this is something dictated at the level of
the operating system. However, because I'm constantly searching for
different/better solutions, I also use LyX/LaTeX/Beamer and
RMarkdown/Slidy to create slide presentations, and I haven't noticed any
differences in colors between my Windows and Linux installations of
those respective respective systems.
