Present: Stuart, Heiko

 * Terminology Calc "Tools > Protect Spreadsheet"
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113236 
   + "Protect Sheet Tabs" (Cor)
     + pro: documentation/help update is not so crucial
     + "Protect the Worksheet" or "Protect the Workbook" is used in Excel
   + "Lock Sheets" (Heiko)
     + pro: the icon is a lock
     + or "Freeze"? (Stuart)
   => let's go with "Protect Sheet Tabs"

  * "View > Grid Lines for Sheet" should work on all sheets
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=105560
    + WF, as Tools > Options is the default and the view options toggles this (Heiko)
    + possible issue with saving, see comment 20
    + Excel works on sheet level, so view > gridlines off works for the current sheet only
    => WF, new ticket for saving
    => another issue is that tools > options = hide are not overrridden by view > gridlines (on)
    => "show on colored cells" doesnt work too - maybe a difference between windows/linux or related to restart
       + weird control anyway with show/hide as one option merged with another (on colored cells)
    => default color is "Grid color", which cannot reset when changed

 * When in autocomplete jump to end of the word per cursor right instead of next cell
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99615 
   + works smoothly only when we always go right on cursor right and never jump to next cell (Heiko)
   + WF; use F2 to exit autocompletion (Eike)
   + MSO works like what Eike describes
   => WF following Eike

 * Comma delimited numbers
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=39829 
   + Enhance "Detect special numbers" (Heiko)
   + Excel provides an "Advanced..." (Text Import Settings) dialog where delimiter can be modified
     + Excel doesnt remember any settings
     + see also tdf#117955 - input delimiter is not necessarily saved as settings on text import dialog will control 
   + supposed workflow in LibreOffice is to select the langauge dependent on the input, e.g. German for 1,2;1,3
   => WFM; we should update the preview when language is changed and perhaps we show in what settings a particular language results

 * Introduce shortcuts for indentation
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101736
   + alt+cmd/ctrl+5/6
   + WF/Customize it, because this function is not so frequently used and we should save rare shortcuts (Heiko)
   + tab in MSO changes the indentation, backspace removes it (to zero) - there is no shortcut
     in LibO we insert a tabulator character (which is done per ctrl+tab in MSO)
   => WFM, customize it (Increment Indent Value, Decrement Indent Value)
