all three have different colors in sidebar and toolbar

If you have the sidebar open and you set a font color, the toolbar font color entry wont change to that color. The same goes for highlight and background color. Tested on 4.3.2.

It should also be noted that when the background button appears in the table toolbar, it works independent to the background button in the formatting toolbar.

Hi Jay, confirmed. The other way, applying color from the toolbar button, update the sidebar button. Set as New - Sophie

Regarding the background color button, this is not a bug. The toolbar button is a split button and supposed to show the last used color, whereas the sidebar button is a simple button so it shows the actual background color of the selected paragraph.

Yes you are correct about the background color feature in the sidebar.

Font color and highlight color split group buttons still not synchronized between toolbar, sidebar and notebookbar.

Clearly a bug (sync works for background color of shapes, for example). No UX input needed.
