I know that today the background color of annotations depends of the author.
But I think that it's too restrictive : to recognize different types of annotations, setting the background color will give better readability.
In Writer, it will be useful, for the same author, to choose the background color of annotations in order to have several colors to distinguish them more easily. Not only for the author but for the next user who will read these comments.
For instance, in order to help pupils to write texts and improve them, I would like to insert annotations with a specific background color depending of the error type : so the pupil will know easily what kind of error he made and he could choose the accurate tool for correction.
Now we have these main properties for the annotations : Author, Content, Date, Datetime, TextRange, ...
In first time, adding a new property for "com.sun.star.text.textfield.Annotation" like "background" could help to do the job with macros.
Impossible to fix the background color of comments/annotations
With a new "background color" property for the annotations "com.sun.star.text.textfield.Annotation", we could choose several for the same author with macro.

I suppport this idea. There are some similar bugs, like bug 61242 and bug 77488. Thierry, do you think we can treat your proposal as a duplicate or not?
Thanks for pointing out these 2 older related bugs (I didn't find them : I looked for the word "annotation" not "comment", not "note"...).
I think indeed that it's the same problem so no problem to mark as duplicate.
