Color functionality in the same place

When changing the color properties for a text box, I'd like to see all of the color options on one tab in the properties window. Right now, the background color is on the General tab, and border and outline colors are on the Border and Margin tab. Love to see just one tab marked Color and have everything in one place.And to top it off, would love to see an Apply/Preview button so you could see how your color choices work before committing. I spend a lot of extra clicks clicking the OK button, then right-clicking and choosing properties, only to have to rinse and repeat.
