Hi Winfried, Ivan,

To the uninitiated, this behaviour might seem very confusing (exactly
as it did to Ivan). In Excel, the default background colour seems to
be yellow, so let's do something similar here – I don't like yellow
per se, but Excel users are probably used to yellow, so no need to
break the functionality for them.
So, I'd propose to use either "Yellow" or "Chart 3" as the default.
