Actually, it's boring to color a text if you want to use a color which is not 
into the color picker : you have to use options to add the color you want to 
the picker.  
It would be nice to have a small button which pop ups a dialog allowing to 
have the color you want (a dialog like the color editor of the options dialog) 
with a small check box allowing to remember the color you picked.

This would be very nice indeed. Preferably, one should be able to select a
colour in any of these ways:

* A GUI color selector
* RGB values
* HSV values
* HTML values
* Colour picker (click a pixel on screen).

The Linux program kcolorchooser is a good example of what I mean.

Please look at issues 11098,27722,33392 which are closely related, perhaps
Please have also a look at my howto:
You can edit the standard palette, but only in Draw. There you can change the
standard.soc file to your needs.

HTML values ARE RGB values.  But anyway, yes we NEED CUSTOM COLORS, I want a
slightly less blaring soft green than Green 6.

Editing the standard pallet is braaaaaaaaaain damage!  How many odd steps do I
need to go through to make a simple color change?  Bah.

This is the MAIN reason I have not switched to OpenOffice away from Microsoft. 
I know it sounds silly, but it is a REAL PAIN to have to create each new color
for use.  Why can't users just see a box which lets them select from any color
in the spectrum?  Then, the last few colors they have selected are displayed as
"favorites".  See Microsoft's color picker.
