Hello everyone, first time I post here.

Once I have customized the default colors for Calc graphs and the general scheme, I'd be interested on knowing where these parameters are saved (any .cfg on my home folder maybe?), so I can copy them to another LOffice installation on another device. If that's the case, where can I find them?

I'm using LibreOffice on elementaryOS Luna, on both PCs.

Thanks for your time!

A quick research (LibreOffice built-in help and this extension) indicates that you can open and save colour palettes as files with the extension .soc that are saved, at least in Ubuntu 12.04, in ~/.config/libreoffice/3/user/config/ (if LO 3.x) ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/config/ (if LO 4.x).

You can save your colour palette in order to use it in another LO. You do this (save and load palettes), from within LO Draw, menu Format > Area, tab Colors.

To change the predefined colours for graphs, go to menu Tools > Options | Graphs | Predefined colors and then add and/or change colours as desired.
