How to change the color for record changes without loosing the differentiation between two authors

I am working with another person on a Writer document and want to see the changes each author makes. The default setting of the color for the first author is kind of brown and I would like to change this color

How can I change this color and still keep the feature that changes from both authors have different colors?
(If I go to tools / options / writer / changes and make a change there, the changes made by each author disappears and only insertions and deletions can be distinguished.)

seems to have the same question.

Any hint is appreciated.

I linked to a couple more “comment colour” questions in my comment font question.

Did you spot this reply from @manj_k in an earlier thread? Looks like it is not yet possible.

@dajare - Thanks for answer and links. However the links are all concerned with the alt+ctrl+c-comments.

@ROSt53 - isn’t that the same part of the system? Sorry if I have misunderstood!

@dajare - I am not deep enough into the details of Writer to judge if the “ctr+alt+c comments” and the “record changes” are linked to each other. All I can see is that both don’t have style elements.
The question is where the font colors for the author and proof-readers are stored. Knowing this might give a chance to change the color set or only a single color.
With our exchange up to here I hope that we trigger now one of or writer specialist to provide and answer and hopefully a solution.

@dajare - Thanks for answer and links. However the links are all concerning the alt+ctrl+c-comments on the right side of the writer documents.

I would like to change the brownish color in below screenshot and still keep the functionality that I can distinguish between me and the other author.

Ahhh! “A picture is worth a thousand words.” :slight_smile:

Question understood is already half of the answer. I am looking forward to the answer(s)

I’m really glad that Libre now supports tracked changes (it didn’t when I used at first). However, I second the concern that the default colors are aesthetically displeasing, although I’m a lot more concerned the 2nd author defaults to a dark Navy Blue that’s very difficult to see (esp. for flux users).

I filed an enhancement request fdo#65231.

Maybe a workaround creating the file with a third user or first record a change with a third.

@mariosv - Could you please explain this a bit more. I would give it a try.

As we can not change the colours and you don not like the colour for the first editor, using a third editor for a first minor or invisible change, I think can make the unlike colour not for you.

@mariosv - Thanks, I got you idea.
