I don't mind. it was just a simple demo and I liked the idea even more after running writer. Much less mouse clicks to mark some text, or a cell in calc or a table. :)

I have not looked into this idea of me further than ventilating the thought. I also don't know how may bitmaps there are (and where) in the code for COL_TRANSPARENT, there are at least the buttons and the palette(s).
But - (a large part of) the confusion was caused by my negligence, when I typed COL_GRAY instead of COL_TRANSPARENT for the initial colour on the button. In the attachement you can see 2 buttons, one with transparent (black border) and one with gray (no border). Perhaps this will be clear enough, especially when we decide to use COL_RED and COL_YELLOW as initial colours for the buttons?
