Description kohsuke 2005-10-31 20:41:20 UTC
1. insert a new slide
2. type in three words, say "abc def ghi" in the body
3. select "abc" and change font color to red by using the toolbar
4. now select "ghi" and try to change font color to the same red.

At this point, one would expect that just clicking the tool button (without
dropping down the color chooser) would do the job, but in reality OpenOffice
forgets the color I just selected, and so I have to do a drop-down selection again.

It's common for an user to apply the same color in multiple parts of the slides.
This behavior reduces the producitivity in this scenario.

Microsoft PowerPoint doesn't have this problem. Issue 28252 and Issue 36035
might be related to this.

This is no defect. As you select "def" the tool shows you the color of the
current selection: which is black in this case for "def". You want it to show
red but this is not correct for the current selection.
For applying a color several times to a text it is even more convenient to use
the "Format Paintbrush" tool in the standard toolbar. Single click for applying
once, doubleclick for several appliances.
