How to set custom colors for the picker box?

ColorPicker.pngThe standard color picker in Report Builder has a row of squares underneath it which look to be shortcuts to custom colors.


My company uses 2 "standard" colors in all of its reporting, so it would be absolutely ideal if I could put them both in there so I can easily use them wherever I need to.


I've had a good old hunt around for the right place to set them, but there doesn't seem to be any way to do it in the GUI. Does anyone know how to set these boxes up to be used?

Unfortunately I don't think there is any way to pre-populate those colour boxes. They just show recently used colours.
