Re: [libreoffice-users] Font colors on Windows vs. Linux


I stand corrected.

I had previously renamed the user profile on my Windows machine, without effect. It never occurred to me to rename the user profile on my Linux machine.

I just went in and renamed the user profile on my Linux machine, and that, in fact, did have the effect of calling up the newer color palette. So now, my Windows and Linux installations of LO have the same "standard" color palette.

My apologies for wasting everybody's time.

My apologies for having not tried that earlier. I had always thought that my problem was with my Windows installation

It might help to clean the user profile, see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile.

PS: Colors are stored as RGB values in documents, there must not be any difference between $FF0000 (Red) on Linux vs. Windows or between different versions.

I have never had much use for the color palettes other than the occasional use of red for the odd word in Writer. So this thread provoked a bit of curiosity to check on my machines.

My W10 box has LO installed from the LO website - recently updated to 6.3.5.2 and the standard color palette is 12 columns by 10 rows. The drop down lists 8 palettes.

My UbuntuStudio box shows 2 standard palettes (in a drop down list of 9 palettes) :
- one with 12 cols by 14 rows with 7 more colors on the 15th row.
- the other standard palette has 12 cols by 10 rows

For years, I have used the Ubuntu distribution of LO but recently I changed to the PPA which purports to maintain the latest LO stable release. It recently updated my copy to 6.3.5.2.

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.

I use the Ubuntu O/S; LibreOffice 6.3.5.1 and 6.4.1.1 are from the LO website. In both cases, the standard pallet contains 12 columns and 10 rows.

I notice the same thing, but my linux version is 6.3 from the openSUSE
repository and not the LO website and the win 10 install is 6.4 so I
could not say that that hasn't caused the difference. I have noticed the
palettes changing over time and a while back I created my own custom
palette (including company branding colours) so I could have consistency.

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 6.3.4.2
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.

Virgil
