Description João Paulo 2020-11-16 03:32:44 UTC
This is not the same as Bug 81654, nor is an accessibility related bug (Menu Tools, Options, LibreOffice, Accessibility).


Running:

Version: 7.0.3.1 (x64)
Build ID: d7547858d014d4cf69878db179d326fc3483e082
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19042; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win
Locale: pt-BR (pt_BR); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded


Steps to reproduce:

On LibreOffice Writer, create a new document and type a few words.  It will be probably typed with the Default Paragraph Style applied.

Press F11 to open the Sidebar on the Styles view, right-click on the Default Paragraph Style and select Modify.

Go to Font Effects, Font Color, and choose a color.  Any palette will do (custom, standard, chart-palettes, HTML, for example).

Press Apply (don't close the dialog).

Try to change the font color back to automatic, you'll see it's not possible to change by pressing Apply nor OK:  It is needed to close the dialog box and then change it back to automatic.

A second very related bug happens when I try to change the HTML palette color from Green to DarkGreen, Green, ForestGreen, SeaGreen, and then Green again:  The Green color is selectable, but the text does not change to it, I have to close the dialog box and then change it back to Green. I couldn't reproduce with other colors, maybe it is related to the "Green" name (or its hexadecimal value 008000).

Both bugs happen when trying to edit a paragraph or character style used on the text document.  Neither of them have serious consequences, they are just minor or trivial, annoying bugs.

Please open a separate report for this secon problem, since we can't mix two issues in one bug report. Thanks.

I couldn't reproduce it again, so I will leave it for now.
