Description smls 2009-10-05 12:33:54 UTC
I work a lot with Writer, Calc and Presenter and I work a lot with colors. Over
the course of the last year I must have wasted, when added together, probably
several *hours* of my time just creating new colors for use in those OOo apps.
I mean, seriously - having to spend a minute or two in the application
preferences dialog every time you wish to try a new color? Who ever thought of that?
Please, please, please add a quick, comfortable & interactive way for choosing
and applying colors that aren't in the current palette. Just like any other
rich-text capable application in the world has.
Pretty please.
This is a serious deficiency in this otherwise very useful and mature office
suite, and also the main reason I'm not sure I can recommend OpenOffice to
others yet as a replacement for Microsoft's proprietary office suite.

Duplicate of Issue 20105.

To manage the many suggestions for enhancing the color palette, I have created a
meta-issue here:
Issue 105642 - Re-design and UI improvements for color palettes (meta-issue)

The purpose of the new issue is for management only, it does not duplicate
specific design requests (that we wish to capture).

Many thanks,

*** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of 20105 ***
