Present: Stuart, Nickson, Heiko


 * Manual Column Breaks
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=118548 
   + WFM / colorize break symbol on type (Heiko)
   + color must not be the primary and only way of feedback (Stuart)
   + we have indicators for page and column break (dashed line)
   + suppressing of unusual workflows (disable the column break in one-col pages) is bad
   => current status is okay, WFM

 * Clear styles
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=118969 (all)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=118979 (character style)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=118980 (list style)
   + besides or additionally to 'clear direct formatting' users may look for 'clear styles'
   + for lists we have ctrl+shift+f12 to remove the style / turn off numbering; congruent to f12
   + problems will occur with nested styles and when a character style is combined with direct formatting
   + users have to take care of putting DF on top of character styles; it's not the supposed workflow
   + we could think about disabling DF when a character style is set (Stuart)
   => there are more side effects and negative consequences than benefits = WF/WFM
   => about list style, we should add access to clear list style to the formatting toolbar

 * Styles & Formatting deck is overpopulated with styles
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=69551 (and tdf#118664)
   + bad generic statement, disagree with the idea of "too many" styles
   + what is a "good number of styles"?, what should to be dropped exactly? (Heiko)
   + we have several options to filter/sort styles (Stuart)
   => postponed

 * Introduce more text box styles in Draw/Impress
   * https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94369
   + what exactly (these styles are hard-coded)
   => postponed
