Pong! :-) Good points!
Jonathan, a question to get a better understanding. With "Libre Colour
palette", do you mean a) the default color palette within LibreOffice,
or b) the LibreOffice Branding Colors  (not shipped with LibO)?
If the latter, then you are right - when presenting the first "beta"
version of the colors, I skipped some color testing as mentioned here
. And as Michael already mentioned, we currently go for high
"luminance" contrast which avoids problems right from the start
(although people sometimes find it a bit boring).
We really don't perform that bad - as you can see here . It might
even require some minutes rendering time - it is a "Colorblind Filter" I
use from time to time. On the right side, there will be a "control box"
that lets you chose different .
Currently we refine the colors to make it easier to work with. Some
people already added their ideas at . From the "branding"
perspective, it is just difficult to use standard palettes (branding
means usually being rather unique). Thus, I plan to do some basic
simulation (e.g. with The Gimp) before we finalize the colors. This
helps a bit, but ...
... from experience it is known that we have to be careful with colors -
not only color blindness, but also cultural differences in what color
means to people.
However, did that address some of your concerns? I'm happy to hear your
opinion and - maybe - some proposals how we can get further
improvements. Especially since the colors should be finalized as soon as
possible (other related items are stalled at the moment).
