Description Stefan Knorr (astron) 2012-02-06 04:03:46 UTC
We should try to use split buttons for all toolbar color choosers, for a longer
rationale, see: bug 45671.

How to get to see the button:
* Open Calc
* In the Formatting toolbar, find the Font Color item (icon: an "a" with a colored line below it)

See that the button is a simple button, not a split button.

Great stuff, Winfried! Thank you!
Comment 3 Winfried Donkers 2012-03-06 07:50:57 UTC
transparent colour is a choice in the palette, but the cell background does not get transparent. That'll have to be fixed, so I reopened the bug.
