How do I replace the colors in my drawings?

LibreOffice switched the available colors.

Some of the colors I had used aren't available any more. So if I want an old item and a new unit to match, I have to replace the colors in the old item. And I want to replace the colors through the whole document. But I can't check the exact shade of each item, without clicking on each group, clicking again to enter the group, clicking on the item I want to check, no not that one, the other one, that one, click, click, click, click back out, etc.

In 1 document, I have to check 352 groups, and about 8 items in each group. I have coordination problems and arm injuries, so this isn't easy. Some draw programs used to include a sampling tool, so you could check exactly which shade a given spot used, without drilling down into groups. Does LibreOffice include anything similar? I tried help, to no avail.
