# The "colors" property contains the color palette from Microsoft Word,
# which appears when changing shading or font color.
# Apply custom colors to the color palette so we have easy access to them in Microsoft Word
# when we, for example, change the font color via "Home" -> "Font" -> "Font Color",
# or insert a shape, and then set a color for it via "Shape Format" -> "Shape Styles".
