I like this new colour selector already very much. But could it also be possible to add it to the standard formatting dialogue boxes?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open WRITER
Go to FORMAT -> CHARACTER -> tab FONT EFFECTS -> FONT COLOUR
Go to FORMAT -> CHARACTER -> tab BACKGROUND
Go to FORMAT -> PARAGRAPH -> tab AREA
Result: In all these places it is not possible to access the new colour selector.
Reproduced with LO 126.96.36.199.beta1, Win 8.1.
Yup, needs UX-Advise agreement, but enhancement should probably be done as the color picker conversions continue.
Stuart mentioned this recommendation in bug 84267 comment 7 saying, "It would be a very useful enhancement to configure the new color picker GUI to open and manipulate the color values across all tabs of the Area dialog."
Hi Stuart and Jay:
Thank you very much for your fast replies and comments.

Me too like the new color dialog.
However, the current drop downs have an advantage to: navigating with key board is fast and easy. down, page down, and the start letter of a color all work.
So when that can be included, I'm all for the idea.
What do others think about that?

Unfortunately i dont see the drop down being very fast or easy as the colors are not sorted by alphabet or gradient and there are way to many colors (167+) to choose from.
We're replacing our use of the 'ux-advise' component with a keyword:
Component -> LibreOffice
Add Keyword: needsUXEval
This issue has been fixed for most places. Remaining dialogs are handled in bug 105225.
