Description ace_dent 2009-10-06 11:16:13 UTC
When searching IssueTracker, I couldn't find an overall issue that relates to the re-design / enhancement of the existing color picker and palette system. There are now many request (some duplicates), that would benefit from being drawn together. NOTE: This only relates to the *color* palette. Design issues for other palettes (hatchings, etc.) should be dealt with elsewhere. For this major overhaul, a specification and team will need to be created. However, first we must collate RFE's, user feedback, and bugs (and eliminate duplicates). Hence I formed this meta-issue for tracking purposes only... I hope that's ok. If this function is served else- please Close. Cheers Andrew Keywords: Color, Colour, Palette, Picker

Another suggestion related to color palettes: The general term in the tech community is "Color Palettes". The OpenOffice buttons to load or save color palettes refer to these as "Color Lists". In the colors editing window the color palette is referred to as a "Color Table". It would be nice if there were only one term. I think "Color Palette" is the best because it is common to lots of software and is in general use.
