    It would be best if we could choose our own colours using the same syntax from HTML or a better colour picker, but be free to choose the exact colours we want.

    On the calendar I can categorise events using colours. These colours used to be bright and vibrant. Now they only look vibrant when they I select an individual event. I am severely dyslexic and rely on the colours to be able to differentiate events on the page at a glance. Now when I look at the calendar everything is muted. When they are all pastel instead of primary I'm not able to differentiate. I have tried dark mode and it helps a little but it also affects my emails which I can't navigate in dark mode.

    I want the old sparkling colours back in the agenda. Now everything looks gray. Sparkling bright colours give me more overview in my agenda
