Description klute 2003-01-31 15:03:41 UTC
In the spreadsheet application it is not possible to define custom colors. It is not even possible to define a custom color in the drawing application, save the color palette as standard.soc, and then use the new color in the spreadsheet application. Or is it just me be too stupid?

Hi Rainer, this is not a bug. Go to Tools - Option - General - Colors and play a bit around. Added Colors will be available in all applications. Frank

Hm, no: In the general dialog "Tools -> Options... -> Colors..." I cannot load and save color palettes while I can do so in "Format -> Area... -> Colors" in the drawing application. The problem is that this dialog is AFAIK not available in the other applications - and in the drawing application only when I have selected an object. However, the main color editing dialog "Tools -> Options... -> Colors..." should really offer these options. Loading and saving color palettes should not be hidden in a remote place that some users might never go to. The best would be if all color dialogs would be the same.

Hi Rainer, So this is not an defect but an RFE. I've set the flags. Frank

Hello Rainer, the Format / Area / Colors... dialog for creating custom colors is available in all applications (Wordprocessor, Presentation, Drawing and Spreadsheet), when a drawobject (or an inserted graphic) exists in the document and is selected. Then this menu entry gets visible (context sensitive). In Wordprocessor and Spreadsheet you get drawn such an object via 'Show Draw Functions' in the main toolbar. If you change the color palette in an application, that color also appears in the options-dialog.

Comment 7 klute 2003-12-11 10:43:49 UTC
So why is there a different and thus inconsistent colors dialog under Tools->Options->Colors? Why can't I load/save color palettes there?

FT: I know that this answer will not really satisfy you: But it is this way because it is so. Sorry, but there will be no changes in the near future on this concept due to massive necessary code change in need.

I think I have a suitable testcase now to reproduce the problem reliably with OOo 2.0.2. At least I did the following twice and got the error both times: 1. Open the attached file Testdocument_okay.odt. 2. Note that there's a large logo graphics at the upper right and a small one at the lower left of the first page. 3. Place the cursor before the word "Copy" on the first page. Hit the [RETURN] key until the word "Copy" is moved to the second page. 4. Save the document to a new file. 5. Close the document. 6. Open the file saved in step 4. 7. Note that the images mentioned in step 2 are missing.
