            Bug ID: 116241
           Summary: Customizing value highlighting colors for colorblind
                    users
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: Inherited From OOo
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Keywords: accessibility
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Calc
          Assignee: libreoffice-bugs@lists.freedesktop.org

In Calc when View -> Value Highlighting is enabled, values are displayed as
follows:
"Text cells are formatted in black, formulas in green, number cells in blue,
and protected cells are shown with light grey background, no matter how their
display is formatted."

I received feedback that eg. green can be particularly hard/impossible to see
for colorblind users (of course it depends on the kind and degree of
colorblindness), so a way to configure the highlight colors could be useful.

As far as I can see the fixed colors are set here:
https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sc/source/ui/view/output.cxx#292
void ScOutputData::SetSyntaxMode( bool bNewMode ) { ... }


I'm not sure where the best place to set the colors would be: Application
Colors vs. Expert Configuration.
One could also argue towards setting up color profiles for different kinds of
color blindnesses, and provide sensible defaults, but that looks like a larger
chunk of work.
