Description joergwartenberg 2004-02-01 15:38:37 UTC
It would be helpful, to make it possible to enter new colors as hexadecimal numbers.

At the color palette configuration dialog at Tools>Options>OpenOffice>Colors>Edit

RGB colors are often stated in hexadecimal numbers(e.g in HTML tags like <FONT
COLOR="#f0ba9c">). The workflow is unecessary long, if the user has to convert
the numbers for all three colors with a pocket calculator to decimal, before he
can enter it into OOo.

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,

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
