Description norbert2 2003-09-25 09:07:57 UTC

As I can see it's impossible to set user-defines colours for example as cell
backgrounds (and as other colours). The only way is to set such colours in the
settings. I think this is very circuitous.
In Microsoft's office its possible to set user-defines colours directly. I think
you should do the same in OpenOffice.

Duplicate of:
Issue 20105 - Adding a custom color selector (easier addition of custom colours)

To manage the many suggestions for enhancing the color palette, I have created a
meta-issue here:
Issue 105642 - Re-design and UI improvements for color palettes (meta-issue)

The purpose of the new issue is for management only, it does not duplicate
specific design requests (that we wish to capture).

Many thanks,
