Hello to anyone reading this. I'm writing this to suggest an idea. I have not, as yet, installed LibreOffice. I working with the assumption that for now it is similar to

I was creating a presentation in and set the background as a gradient. I noted that you actually had to use Draw to add new gradients in OOo. I drew a rectangle in Draw, right-clicked on it and chose Area -- Gradient, created my new gradient then pasted it into the presentation's master slide. I believe that the location of the dialog to create/delete or modify gradients is a bit odd. I'd suggest as an alternative to create something, for lack of better words, "Mission Control". "Mission Control" could serve to replace the Options Dialog in LibreOffice and do more. I'd think if implemented properly it could be the spot to, among other things, add/remove/modify gradients and add new templates for all programs (re-initializing templates when done, so new templates are available), Set options for the various programs (Writer, Draw, etc). Others who are more familiar with LibreOffice could probably imagine further uses for "Mission Control". Give it a better name too.

So, as for my example, when I bring up the 'Gradient Dialog' in any program (Writer, Draw, Impress, etc.) It will show a link or button and read something along the lines of "To add/remove or modify gradient, launch Mission Control".

I hope this makes sense. I'm sorry I have no programming or coding skills to help implement it.

Thanks for you time,
