New color palette for OpenOffice

New color palette

Este artículo también está disponible en español.

It’s been more than a year since I released my own color palette for OpenOffice so I thought it was time to release a new one. This time it is organized in a different way so that more colors are included (with fewer shades, though).

In this new palette the first two rows are the same as the ones in the old palette but they appear in a different order: I’ve put the brighter colors first. By doing so, I’ve tried to emphasize the division between these two rows and the next ones.

Rows 2 to 10 show sixteen colors (organized in two vertical areas) in five shades each. In the old palette ten colors in nine shades are shown so this new palette contains more colors but fewer shades of each color. Nevertheless, the horizontal layout allows you to include more color easily.

To install the palette, just follow the instructions given in the old post. Notice that, if you’re using OpenOffice QuickStarter, it must be restarted after copying the new palette for the changes to apply. I guess that these palettes can be installed in LibreOffice as well but I haven’t tested.

As usual, this file can be distributed and modified freely as long as you give credit to the author.

Why don’t you download it and give it a try?

I hope you like it!

  2. Hello!

    To install a new color palette in LibreOffice 5 and make it the default one, here’s what I did:
    Go to the path from the LibreOffice > Tools > Options… > LibreOffice > Colors > Load Color Palette dialog, in my case ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/config.
    Back up the standard.soc file (for example, rename it standard.soc.bak).
    Copy the new palette file in this directory and name it standard.soc.

    The dialogs are now 12 columns large so the nice color shades are screwed up however…
