Description xerampelinae 2005-04-22 21:53:38 UTC
As described in BUG 10922 the neon green color of the pen used to draw on a
presentation is very difficult to see for students in a classroom, and the color
 is hard coded into OOo.

I would like to see the default changed to perhaps black or red, as they are
much easier colors to see.  BUG 10922 is still a very good idea, but I filed
this report to request a simple change of the default color, which should be
much easier than what BUG 10922 is requesting.

A slightly more ambitious, but still not difficult, would be to read the color
value from a file or some such, instead of hard coding it in the OOo source.

Default pen color for current version 4.0.1 is red. It seems fixed by bug 113018.
