Seems there is some duplication between Issue 60413 and Issue 77347.

For color palette
* we should reorder, recreate the palette. I see the adavantage to no include
such big palettes what we submitted in
But adding also as loadable palettes is a good way to resolve this problem. I
will check how to solve this problem and the possible licensing problems (if
there are). Draw and Impreass can handles loading palettes, that is what
blocking general palette usage... So we should implemet load/save plaette for
every main module. If it is ready we can see how useful the invidiual palettes
can be.

For hatching
* We can say something similar to color palettes. We can include some elements
(for example standard hatchinks like 1cm, 1 inch) and some interesting colorful
variants. Of course not all hatching shoul include what we submited, but it can
find new home in a new palette.

For linestyles
* We only added some standard linestyles. I can not see any reason why we do no
include these standard following linestyles.

For arrowheads
* Only few styles added here. It is up to you if you include it. I would like to
see it in the stream but that is all.

Fro gradients
* In my opinion we added lot of interesting styles here (but not too much). I
want to force to include it in the main release.

Yes, it would be nice to have this integrated.
Comment 10 nmailhot 2007-08-23 13:48:27 UTC
Please also consider sharing these resources with other common FLOSS apps (like
demanded in issue #67648)

Comment 13 bjoern.milcke 2008-01-21 16:52:12 UTC
->VA: Is this planned for 3.0? 2.x seems not to be the correct target.
Comment 14 weko 2008-01-22 10:09:36 UTC
VA: Set target to OOo 3.x. We create child tasks for the different palettes with 
appropriate targets, e.g. a new Color Palette is planned for 3.0.
Comment 15 weko 2008-11-11 14:29:30 UTC
VA->BH: As there is still some conceptual work to do regarding this issue I 
reasign it to you.

cl->ih: thank you for taking responsibility for this issue.

Comment 18 ace_dent 2009-10-06 12:16:15 UTC
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,

1. "So we should implemet load/save plaette for every main module." Yes, and a
menue item "Format > Area" in every main module also.
2. Edit the wiki page, becaue color palettes or gradients are not only for the
modul "Draw" [2].
3. We should change the standard color palette to a neutral and indipendend
palette, based on the standard color theory (RGB)[4] and NOT to a nondurrable
"modern", companie, region or subjective based palette [3]. Other software like
GIMP, Krita, Inkscape, Scribus or other GNOME and KDE applications use a similar
color theory based standard palette. The 6 degree base color palette fits good
in the current color dialog. But other base colors with a
different degree can be used [5].

KA=>ANDBA: This seems to be a user experience task initially. 
Please specify the correct behavior/ appearance of all mentioned tables.
Comment 24 thorsten.ziehm 2010-11-08 14:55:36 UTC
OOo 3.3 is nearly final. Therefore I change the target of this issue to OOo 3.x.
