--- Comment #2 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
This is a needed enhancment.

Advantage to including the "Add" 'a named color' to custom palette via the
"Pick a Color" dialog directly would be efficiency.

Most work flows benefit when a named color, rather than its RGB hex value, is 
available for reuse. 

Beleive our mechanism for this is "only" available on the Area dialog's Color

The common use color picker can only set a RGB color to be assigned to any
object's color attribute (for points, lines, polygons) and color then appears
as a recent. But you must now go back through the Area dialog to capture that
color for persistent reuse via user profile. The Add button creates CustomColor
and  CustomColorName stanzas in registrymodifications.xcu

Addition of the single Add button for the dialog, perhaps named "Capture" or
even "Custom", to the picker is reasonable expenditure of GUI space to support
better management of user colors. Button action would have to complete the
color pick, and then launch the colorname dialog.
