So I played a bit with color schemes in Libre Office ( tools/options/LibreOffice/appearance) in order to produce a more friendly environment for my eyes. After finding the right combinations I saved them making 2 extra profiles. I ve got the following 2 problems:

1) After I started using the new profiles background fill doesnt work in Calc... Any suggestions where I should look?

2) When I saved my 2 new profiles the default LibreOffice profile was also changed and as a result I cannot revert in the default LibreOffice appearance. (that would not be an issue though if everything worked with the new profiles)

LibreOffice was installed after I removed OpenOffice using the Ubuntu official repository in an maverick installation.

Any ideas would be welcomed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi there, had the same

Hi there,

had the same problem: the only solution I've found was to switch Ubuntu's theme to Clearlooks or something equivalent (pale, anyway).
HTH.

Well what worked for me,

Well what worked for me, although might sound crazy but things are like this some times, I had to re-install the two languages I am using in my system ( greek english). 

After the re-installation everything worked fine.

Hope it helps

Uh! I won't go...

...that far.
I've experienced this problem on my box and another one freshly installed. Since I foresee installing a few others, I'll keep your suggestion in mind and let you (everybody) know what happens with those.

Thanks!

Changing colour scheme
As a new user, particularly because of the attractive layout in Writer, I was amazed that most items have disappeared when opening a new document. There seems to be no ready way to get Font, Highlight and Background color palates back again. Searching through that long menu in View>Toolbars, each one having to be switched on then off, is a pain, with no joy at the end! The meaning, too, of several words is just mysterious in English. Give us a clear message what you are trying to do. And, ideally, the option of the old or the new. Fundamental design changes in Writer without guidance is asking for user failure. By all means innovate and be different. But don't switch the lights out on us, leaving no candle! I still cannot discover the 3 palates in the dark! Can you reveal the secret, please?

Bless you! No. First time anywhere on a forum and I misinterpreted the title. Apologies. I'll seek a more exact home for this problem with color in Writer. Best wishes.

Changing Shapes Defaults
Every time I insert a shape in a document, its background color ("area") is Blue 8 and I have to change it to white. Is there a way to make white the default color for all shapes' backgrounds (BTW the same applies to lines, fonts etc.)?
