Trying to change to another palette. Clicking on palette side button for either font colour or highlight colour to offer alternatives shows the full list including a custom .soc put in ~.config/libreoffice/4/user/config but click to change to another palette no longer has any effect.
Fresh TDF build 126.96.36.199 does not have this bug (nor the rpm flatpak package of the same build) but is currently not as responsive as 188.8.131.52. A partial workaround is to remove the standard.soc from ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/config of LO 184.108.40.206 and replace with customized standard.soc.
