Description stefanpampel 2003-12-02 15:08:09 UTC
when i define some new colours and try to save them in a palette file (.soc) i
got an error such as "can't save file" (in German : "Die Datei konnte nicht
gesichert werden").
I can find a 0KB file in the directoy where i saved the pallette. All
Informations lost.

To make a new pallette i has copied a standard palette-file, deleted all colours
and started from scratch.

When i use names for the colours like "yellow1" "green1" i got this error (also
tested without the number).
But if i use colour names like "foo yellow1" a can save the pallette-file
without error. Maybe the basic colour names like yellow, green etc. are reserved

Sorry, could not reproduce this. Please give a detailed step by step description
of your actions. Thanks in advance.

o.k. -> how to produce the error (i try to translate the menu/options, but i
have the german version here):
- open Impress
- goto menu "Format" > "Fill" (Fläche)
- goto register "color" (Farben)
- make an empty palette file (or delete all colors from one palette)
- make a new color named "Yellow" and "Add" (Hinzufügen)
- save the pallette as "foo.soc";
Here i got an error dialog "Can't save file" (Die Datei konnte nicht gesichert
When i goto the location where you have saved the file i only can see a 0 Kb
file "foo.soc" .
- click the ok button on the error dialog an name the color to "fooYellow" and
click "Apply" / "Change" (Ändern) 
- save the palette as "foo.soc"
That works fine. No errors.

If you want to know something else pls let me know.

Yes, that was it! Now I can reproduce it. It only occurs in a german version,
not in an english one. Thanks for your explicit description.

Comment 6 ace_dent 2009-10-06 12:03:38 UTC
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).

This issue may be suitable for inclusion, if it still occurs?...

Many thanks,
