Description richardbaxter 2015-03-06 05:30:33 UTC
The user cannot determine the colour of a cell whose colour has been defined a) in a different version of openoffice, or b) by another user with a custom colour.

Workaround; the only way the user can gain access to one of these previously defined colours is to copy and paste the cell formatting of one of their cells.

1. OpenOffice should support the ability to simply view/select (and reuse) one of these custom colours already used in their document (defined via a or b).
2. The RGB information of all cells should be available to users (so that even if 1. is not yet implemented, the user can at least manually define the relevant custom colours used by their document)

Already reported: no ability to save new colors inside the document
