So, Why the help for Writer is green?
If LibreOffice icon is gray!
Steps to Reproduce:
If you call Writer help the interface is green... If you call Calc help, is green... So, How could the user differentiate it in a better way?
If you call Writer help the interface is green... If you call Calc help, is green.
Writer help: Use the colors for Writer icon in the interface.
Calc Help: Use the colors for Calc icon in the interface.
LifreOffice generic and/or Base help: Use green or gray.
User Profile Reset: No
This would help a lot to the user to know where it is and it is not very difficult to implement. One color for the each program.
This is overcomplicating things.
1) LibreOffice Green is the overarching brand color, which is established, fully recognizable and distinctive. Using sub-brand colors in this way would undermine its value. (Damn, I really need to sit down and write a comprehensive brandbook for our project.)
2) Some help topics are intertwined too much, with some pages under /shared that relate to the different applications. Using color as suggested here would be confusing.

Perdón, soy usuario de LibreOffice y como usuario, la ayuda actual es confusa. Cuando busco algo, no sé a qué programa hace referencia por lo que diferenciarlo con "el color de la aplicación" ayudaría a saber dónde estoy parado. Y si hay ayuda cruzada o general para todas las apps, entonces podría usar el gris (de acuerdo al icono). Yo no asocio el verde a LibreOffice (su icono es gris), asocio el verde a Calc (su icono es verde). Es más, cuando veo algo minimalista verde y blanco automáticamente me viene a la cabeza LibreOffice Calc.
Si lo ven solamente desde el punto de vista programador, nunca podràn ayudar realmente al usuario. Y eso, lamentablemente, pasa demasiado en LibreOffice y por eso muchas veces no resuelven problemas al usuario.
Sorry, I'm a user of LibreOffice and as a user, the current help is confusing. When I search for something, I do not know what program it refers to, so differentiating it with "the color of the application" would help to know where I am standing. And if there is cross or general help for all the apps, then I could use the gray (according to the icon). I do not associate green with LibreOffice (its icon is gray), I associate green with Calc (its icon is green). What's more, when I see something green and white minimalist automatically LibreOffice Calc comes to mind.
If they see it only from the programmer's point of view, they can never really help the user. And that, unfortunately, happens too much in LibreOffice and for that reason many times they do not solve problems to the user.
