Currently, OpenOffice shows a select box where you can choose a color. It would be more user-friendly if there was a color chooser such as what we have here: http://colors.napcsweb.com/colorschemer/

Actually, I just saw that the select box only applies to background colors in charts (I am using Impress). So, when inserting a "basic shape" in my document, it would be nice if I could change the background color using the same kind of UI as what we have for fonts (that is: using a color chooser instead of a select box).

Please give a step by step description of what you are doing, where and with which dialogs. Thanks.

Sure, here it is. Inside Impress: 1) Create a new presentation 2) go inside the "drawing" bar and draw an Ellipse. 3) Try to change its background color. The only way you can do that is to select a color from the select box on top. It would be more user-friendly to add a color chooser instead.
