Present: Stuart, Nickson, Heiko
* Heavy changes regarding menu; review needed
=> we need additional UX/dev eyes on these patches
* Bundle the new "EB Garamond" font with LibreOffice
+ SIL Open Font License 1.1
+ packed 2.5MB incl. OTF and TTF
+ prefer an easy way to load fonts from extension site but for slightly now tend to agree (Heiko)
+ failing an extension, what to do now?
Q. do we integrate and ship?
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115944 and similar
+ too many fonts that are not of common interest (Heiko)
+ language scope of EB Garamond is just too limited (Stuart)
A. Keep the ticket open--but not bring it in yet. Need to wait for better font weight handling cross platform
* 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)
+ we do not agree there is advantage to reducing the number of styles (Stuart, Heiko)
+ sorting of styles, move interesting to top of list
+ reorganization of the default and sorting
+ the GUI needs attention, reverse the toggle
=> AI Heiko: look for reference sidebar mockups for better style workflow...
* Introduce more text box styles in Draw/Impress
+ what exactly (these styles are hard-coded)
+ Text Body, Title, Heading 1, Heading2, eading 3, QuotationsP, PreformattedText, Bullet List, NumberList (Andreas)
+ different editengine between Writer and Draw/Impress,
+ implementation issues aside, do we want to mix Writer styles and Draw styles?
+ nice to do, but would be better to be able to do it globally
+ meanwhile--matching the styles cross module requires each be duplicated, too much work!
=> maybe OK to do a few, 1 heading, 1 title, 1 text, etc.
* Confusion with CALC: Show Comment on/off
+ comment 4
+ need a new icon for the single show/hide comment for cell
+ make it clear the show all toggles all comments on off
+ iconography to show multiple cells/comments and another for single cell/comment
* Autocomplete taking special characters
+ WFM (Heiko)
