Description nmailhot 2006-07-21 10:47:51 UTC
OO.o should allow defining a directory where the Gimp, Inkscape and OO.o would
read-write colour palette definitions in a common format

Reassigned to Drawing comp.
Comment 2 nmailhot 2006-07-21 11:04:31 UTC
Actually, colours are used in everyy OO.o component (except perhaps base)

It would be really nice for to collaborate with existing color
standards in Gimp and Inkscape.

They already have existing files (*.gpl) for color palettes, essentially simple
text files, with a small header + line for each color, like:
233  50   9    This is one of my colors

At the very least, having ability for import/export of .gpl files, would be nice.

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,
