LibreOffice Calc (Debian). 'Format cells ...' function - no background color edits, no color palette selection. Tools>Options - no color editor! What happened? Is it possible?

Test whether LibreOffice user profile is causing the issue:

  • Start LibreOffice
  • Restart in Safe Mode using Help -> Restart in Safe Mode and confirm the restart using button: Restart
  • Archive your profile expanding Advanced (click on the word Advanced right above Help button) and click Archive User Profile button
  • Click button Continue in Safe Mode
  • Open a file and test whether the problem is gone

If the problem is gone while running in LibreOffice Safe Mode, most probably you user profile is corrupt and you need to reset to factory settings (could be also done via Help -> Restart in Safe Mode; carefully read the option in the dialog appearing when starting safe mode)

(May be you are comparing functionality of older releases - and is such older release - with your experience on more recent versions)
