Description sven_lilienthal 2007-02-11 17:28:32 UTC
The only way adding a chart to a presentation is by adding an ole-object of type
chart to the presentation. If you add a custom color to the palette in impress
you can't use this color while editing the chart.
Possible solution: Use one color palette for all subcomponents of ooffice

Confirming with 2.1 and 2.2m5 on WinXP. Repro steps:
1. Open file .
2. Click Tools, Options, OO., Colors and in "Name" type "distinctive123456", 
click Add (no need to change anything in the dialog), OK.
3. Bring up Colors dialog again to make sure that "distinctive123456" is 
there. Click OK.
4. D-click embedded object in the middle of the slide, r-click _empty_ cell 
(second row, below the words), click "Format cells", "Font effects", "Font 
Color" and make sure "distinctive123456" is not there.

Sorry, not reproducible here. The new color is also available in Spreadsheet
OLE, too. Any hints about a special version, special installation type or
anything else? Thanks in advance.

8. Choose tab "Background"
9. Color "distinctiveNew" is not available

There seems to be a problem with the update frequency of the color table. At
first I could not reproce but then it was there. Even after deleting colors from
the tools/options/colors page they were still offered in Calc OLE.

Possibly also relates to wider issue:
Issue 28994 - Save new colors inside the document (make custom colors easily
Comment 7 ace_dent 2009-10-07 18:19:09 UTC
Fixed summary: "pallete" -> "palette".
