Background color palette

Problem: Today you find per example the different shades of green laying
separately from eachother.
For most users I would guess it is hard to quickly determine what shades there
is of the different colors.

Suggestion: Put the different shades of each color close to eachother.

This is really an usability issue and more since the new chart color palette was
integrated at the end of the palette. Some colleagues has complained about that.
For example, there are 5(!) areas in the palette where you can choose a red
color (in line 2, line 3, line 4, line 10, and line 11).

The colors in the color palette should be rearranged to have a smoother
transition between the colors.

This is covered by:
Issue 36505 - Renew color palette - Make a new default color palette for all OOo

And also:
Issue 29040 - Re-organize color palettes by dragging to re-arrange.

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,
