When changing the font color on open office (Impress, Writer etc..) OpenOffice does not display the color, but the "auto color" instead.
The same document do save it, and I can see the color on different Linux distro with OpenOffice 2.4.0

Additional info:
* package version(s): extra/openoffice-base 2.4.0-2
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new document in OpenOffice
2. Write Text/Add textbox
3. Select the text
4. Press on right click
5. Select Character -> font effects -> font color
6. choose a color
7. remove text selection

You will need to see it in the same color you have started with before choosing the different color.
This task depends upon

Finally I found out the reason.

The problem is that on Options->>Accessibility->Use Automatic font color for screen display. It was checked, removing it, displayed the color properly.
