just try to insert that image


and tell me if you're interested in seeing all those FromSVG#062a00 to show up in your color list.

i love all those reds and i don't find any of them offensive.

but they come in the way, when i have to select the colors i do want to use in my document.

one way to avoid the need for a crystall ball, would be to recognize that they have been inserted through an import: would it possible and desirable to flag all the colors inserted that way and give a way to filter them out?

may i tell you that you don't need to put a smile at the end of such a mail?
