I suggest you ...

Improve the Colour Selection Feature

To choose a font or background colour in Design View is really abit clunky to say the least. Say you select a control and want to change its colour...
If you Right click on the control and select Back Colour you get a rather feeble array of 70 colours, some too dull and others too bright.

If you go to the properties of the control you see a hex number and a drop down arrow and a triple dot, the dropdown giving you a range of system colours (but you can't see what they are) and the triple dot giving you the same 70 colours you saw before.

Clicking on More Colours eventually gives you a colour wheel and a colour map.

A real Dog's Dinner. Can one of you expert programmers spend a few minutes tidying it all up!!
