I am willing to help there, certainly ! But I'd rather have someone with
some design skills come up with a generic color palette and styles that
can be reused throughout documents, presentations and spreadsheets.
If you let me do it, I would go with the default styles of AsciiDoc which
I am reimplementing in ODF. They are not the most attractive, but
certainly better than what is now the default. I am sure a stylist can
come up with something better looking though !
One of the ideas I think would be great, is having a small LibreOffice
logo on the default document somewhere on the lower-right of the page. Or
in the default footer. The logo is stylish and non-obtrusive.
PS I was very impressed with the default presentation stylesheet for the
conference. And maybe green is a nice color for the default. Who did design
that template ?
