I have two laptops running LibreOffice. One is a Sony Vaio with LO 6.0.6.x and Linux Mint 18. The other is a Lenovo with LO 6.0.7.x and Windows 10.
I recently opened an Impress Presentation on my Windows machine to work on. At one point, I wanted to change the color of my font on one of my slides. I went to the font color icon on the toolbar and clicked the down arrow. I immediately noticed that the selection of available colors was different that that available on my Linux computer.
To be more specific, if I click on the font color icon on the Windows computer, I get a selection of available colors arranged in 12 columns by 10 rows. For this example, I am using the colors available in the palette called "standard." The top row shows 12 shades of gray. In the second row, the color choices are "Yellow," "Gold," "Orange," "Brick," "Red," "Magenta," "Purple," "Indigo," "Blue," "Teal," "Green," and "Lime." Then under each color column are boxes called Light <color> or Dark <color> followed by a number. So, for example, if I look at the "Blue" column, the top color is represented simply as "Blue." Below it are color boxes called "Light Blue 4," Light Blue 3," and so on down to "Light Blue 1," then followed by "Dark Blue 1," up to "Dark Blue 4." Each column is similarly arranged under its respective color.
On my Linux computer, the "standard" palette consists of 12 columns by 15 rows of colors. The color row below the row of gray, is represented by the colors, "Yellow," "Orange," "Red," "Pink," "Magenta," "Purple," "Blue," "Sky Blue," "Cyan," "Turquoise," "Green," and "Yellow Green." Then below each main color are boxes ranging from <Color> 1 to <Color> 9 with no light or dark designations.
In short, the "standard" font color palette on LO in Windows is different from the "standard" palette on LO in Linux Mint. Moreover, the color represented as "Blue" on my Windows machine is decidedly different than the color called "Blue" on the Linux machine.
I must say I have been using both computers for over a year now and I often share LO files between the two computers. It was only recently -- in the past week -- that I noticed the difference in standard color palettes. I could have sworn that the two palettes were the same in the past, but I can't think of anything I could have done to cause the Windows LO "standard" color palette to suddenly change.
In an attempt to "fix" things, I downloaded and installed LO 184.108.40.206 to my Windows computer, and also renamed my user profile. Neither had any effect on the way the "standard" font-color is represented.
I know this is longer than anyone would like, but if anyone can confirm similar behavior on their Windows vs. Linux installations of LO, or recommend any action, I would appreciate it.
