If you mean the drop down on the right of the Fill colour patch Jerry then this is the colour selection that I want to add to as it is more limited than the selection in the previous version of Numbers, as there are only 29 generally rather bright colours now !

I think that has resolved the issue - basically when copying an existing colour or creating a new custom colour via the colour box it can then be dragged onto the standard colours box (above in my case) for use later from the little pull down. I use the light green and rust colours a lot and it is useful to have quick access to them this way
Thanks for your help. Just need to check if the colours carry over to different documents !

It's always good to see users solving their own problems.
The Colors Pane Color Well, at the bottom of the pane, should carry over not only to other documents, but to other apps because the pane is a System resource. Not sure about the big color blocks above.

Good to know the Colours Pane Well can be carried over to other documents. I have also set up a template doc with the colours in, which retains the colours in the big colour blocks, so that is useful
I just posted a question about transferring para styles between documents in the new version of Pages, would you have any clues on that ? https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5487352

I have tried to do this as well but am struggling to save the custom colours. Please can someone show me the screen shots of how to do it. I've tried dragging and dropping but it hasn't worked for me. Not surte I'm dragging and dropping to/from the right places.
Thanks in advance - it's driving me a bit bananas.

Bring up the Colour window (shift command c).
Step 1. Create a colour (I can't get an arrow or number 1 on top of this screen shot).
Step 2. Your colour will appear as shown by Arrow 2.
Step 3. Drag the colour to the custom palette shown by Arrow 3.
Step 4. Drag from the custom palette to a table cell.
As a test, I Quit Numbers and relaunched. The custom colour was still in the custom palette.
Edit: Step 3, drag from the colour pane (Arrow 2) to the custom palette (Arrow 3). Ian.
