Description Am Jam 2020-07-04 23:54:02 UTC
Librecalc text-color-selector (the little icon with the letter "a" that lets you select what color your text is in a cell) resets to red every time you insert a comment.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter text into Cell A1
2. Color the contents of Cell A1 any color not red (say, for example, green)
3. Insert a comment in any cell on the spreadsheet

Actual Results:
The text-color-selector reverts back to red.

Expected Results:
The text-color-selector stays green. I expect the text-color-selector to remain at the color that I set it to, and only change when I explicitly ask it to. 

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Comment 3 Maxim Monastirsky 2020-08-11 18:31:10 UTC
This is a global problem that color buttons do not remember the last used color when the toolbar containing them is closed (when inserting a comment the "Formatting" toolbar is closed, and replaced by the "Text Formatting" toolbar). Same underlying issue as in Bug 113433, so let's keep them together.
