This is not a bug report but this page is where the link from LibreOffice Writer "Send Feedback" brought me.

The default colour for the font is black which is fine. But if I want to select a different colour from the font colour icon, it defaiults to a dirty brown. Is it possible to make the default an option of the user's choosing?              
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release

Cor, I don't understand this report because there are new colors since some LibO versions. Is this still relevant?

@thomas: indeed a lot has changed. The current widget for selecting colors is handsome and doesn't default to black. So it is resolved in the mean time.
