DCM Direct Colour Management

8 1

Direct Colour Management is used to change the colours of one or more objects or texts directly, not by assignment of a colour from the palette.

Project Description

Direct Colour Management is used to change the colours of one or more objects or texts directly, not by assignment of a colour from the palette, which therefore will not be encumbered by colours you need only once. Moreover, you can readjust a colour, starting from the current colour, and are not obliged to start from scratch again. You select the colours in DCM primarily not by setting the red, green and blue values, because it is difficult to estimate the results of changing one of these components, but rather by setting the three parameters H = Hue, S = Saturation and V = Value. DCM adds a button to several toolbars and an entry to the format menu. Texts and help are available in english, german and french. The extension has been tested with LibreOffice 4.2.6 and Apache OpenOffice 4.1.0, but should work with other releases, at least starting with 3.1.

Current Release

DCM Direct Colour Management - 1.2.2

Released Aug 19, 2018 — tested with:

LibreOffice 5.3, LibreOffice 5.4, LibreOffice 6.0, LibreOffice 6.1,

In Writer, for text in frames the icon was not visible in the toolbar (but the menu item in "format" did work). The reason was that there is a toolbar for "textobjectbar" and another one for "drawtextobjectbar", which have the same name when looking at the menu item View -> toolbars. I don't know where textobjectbar is used, but I hope it will still work. Drawtextobjectbar now carries the DCM symbol.

Release 1.2 covered principal support of changed circumstances in LibO 6.0, this release adds the reaction to changes in the menu or toolbar structure. DCM will work correctly (as far as I know) with 1.2, but you will sometimes have some problem to call it, which will hopefully be cured with this release. If not, contact me, the mail address is in the help file.

The code for handling the square had to be rewritten because of a change of the sequence of the event handling. Furthermore, the small square had a wrong position in some situations. It may disappear in some rare cases, therefore a button has been added to make it visible again. Help buttons have been added, too.

Handling paragraph background colour in text tables poses some problems if the colour wasn’t set by DCM, but by LibO, in newer releases. A warning is issued when this could be the case.

In rel. 1.1.2 the setting of paragraph background colour was deactivated, because it was no longer possible to set this attribute (bug #99125). Now a workaround has been found (thanks to Tibor Kovács), so setting the background colour is again available.

Some versions of releases 5.3 and 5.4 of LibO no longer tolerated missing parentheses in Basic code, which led to errors in this and other extensions. This new version of DCM has the missing parentheses added.

    This version should be used only for LibreOffice. There is a bug in LO which prevents the setting of the paragraph background colour via program inWriter. This feature is therefore temporarily inactive. Some minor amendments for special cases.

        Choice for cell colour is also offered if the cursor is just within a text table cell. Some cases where "no colour" was shown are now handled exactly. The choice "no colour" was added, for completeness sake.
