Set color preference for action buttons

Postby animal party » Fri May 26, 2017 2:26 am

When I am in open office the action buttons (save cancel help back, etc) are all very dark blue and hard to read. How do I change this?

Use the tools menu... see screenshot. You should have got some styles during installation of OpenOffice. Swap to another style.

OpenOffice 4.1.8 on LinuxMint 19 or 20 Mate, rarely W7-64 pro and W10-64 pro; LibreOffice current versions 6 or 7

Thanks but I have gone where you showed me. I have changed the style to every one that is there (about 4 or 5).
This has not changed anything. I still have the dark blue.

Did you additionally check the "Accessibility"? Probably "unselect/select" of one or more of the items may be helpful.
Overall you can try to customize your graphics in some direction. Rarely OpenOffice needs help on some graphics/hardware configuration(s).

Has this ever been answered ? I'm having the same problem of unreadable text on dark blue buttons and found no way to change this. Nothing I change in Prefs ever makes any difference. As a (default) setting this is completely unusable
