Present: Stuart, Nickson, Heiko

 * Heavy changes regarding menu; review needed
   + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/56912/
   + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/56980/
   => we need additional UX/dev eyes on these patches

 * Bundle the new "EB Garamond" font with LibreOffice
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119085 
   + https://fonts.google.com/specimen/EB+Garamond
   + https://github.com/georgd/EB-Garamond
   + 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
   * https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94369
   + 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
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=107144
   + 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
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=118399 
   + WFM (Heiko)
=> postpone
