Description Stefan Knorr (astron) 2012-03-01 10:19:58 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 combo box:
* Open Writer
* Add a shape or a fontwork (with the Drawing toolbar)
Result: Drawing Object Properties toolbar appears on top, below the Standard toolbar.
* In the aforementioned toolbar, see the first combobox (Line Color)

This is a combo box, but ideally, it should be a split button.

Thanks for bugreport
reproduced in 3.6.0rc in Writer in "Text object" toolbar only. In "Formatting" toolbar all already splitted.

Comment from metabug:
-46839 (writer line colour) this control is of a completely differently type
and doesn't allow straightforward conversion to split button. I don't know how
and where the types of the controls of the UI are set.
