This does not satisfy my need. I do not want to permanently affect my theme colors but want to be able to access often used custom colors that I use to accentuate certain blocks of text. I see no reason why a "Custom Colors" bar could not also be added. 

I have included a quick mock-up for your consideration.

Hi Sofie, 

Thank you for letting us know! 

Another idea that I hope will help is to utilize the Quick Access Toolbar. As an example, you can add the shape fill icon to the quick access toolbar for easier access by:

  1. Right-clicking the shape fill icon
  2. Then click on Add it to Quick Access Toolbar:

Mmm, thanks for the answer, but to be honest: this does not really give me a solution.

I need the colors mostly for text edditing. So if I need a custom color, now I have to go to dropdown of A, then to "More colors", then select the color, and then press "ok". It would be nice if the custom colors could be added to a bar like "standard colors", to make access quicker, like in PowerPoint: it is called "recent colors (recente kleuren in Dutch)": see printscreen. Is there anyway to select custom colors faster for text? Or is this planned as a new feature in the future? It would be sooo handy to do this quicker!

Thanks for looking into this!

Kind regards, Sofie
