If you go to Options > LibreOffice > Application Colors, you’ll see a box which allows you to pick a color for many UI elements. This box contains a column called “Preview”, which in previous versions of LO allowed you to see which color you had selected with the list boxes at the left. However, the new color-picking buttons double as a previewer, so the separate “Preview” column is now redundant and should be removed.
Nice one :)
How about keeping the column to show the default values? It would be a static shape/area that just shows the factory setting. -> needsUXEval for this idea

What the decision here.
I found an other issue with this previews, that if you set a different color and then click reset, the color picker button shows the right color (the color before the change), but the preview is not updated accordingly. This issue would be solved if we remove them of course.
No further opinion to show the factory setting in the obsolete column so we should go with removing it. Please do so.
