Individual OOo Application Document Background Color Settings needed/wanted.

Not everyone uses all apps the same way. Graphic apps (Draw/CAD/Visio and 
Present/Powerpoint) I always use a black background.

"Normal" office apps like Excel/Calc, Word/Writer, Access/Base, etc I use a 
lighter background (but usually NOT 100% white, a tan simulating parchment or a 
lite gray.)

My main peeve is with the Draw and Present apps.
Best/Easiest solution is to provide a "Reverse BW Video" command on View menu 
in Draw. This is NOT Black and White View. It is still Color View, just 
reverses the DISPLAY of black and white (while still printing correctly, ie: 
black is printed as black, but displayed as white; White is displayed as black 
but not printed usually because paper is white.)

Yes I can do this now in Draw and everything is fine as long as I only use text 
because it has an "auto" color; However other objects like lines, boxes and so 
on do not have "auto" colors so they disappear if they are black and the 
background is set black.

Check out AutoCAD, TurboCAD and other mainstream Drawing apps give this reverse 
video option (saves the eyes and the color shades look better too!)
