Present: Tomaz, Heiko
* Find & replace in protected sections
+ another option on top of what we have makes it not worse, so +1 (Heiko)
+ OTOH manually changes to protected sections are not possible, so why automatic
+ alternatively to another checkbox we could show a confirmation box (Tomaz)
+ not a fan as this interrupts the workflow
+ if we don't allow the operation we could give better feedback like
"Search key replaced 42 times. But there are 2 protected sections that weren't touched."
=> keep the ticket open and give these advices
* Tools > Options > Asian/CTL always active
+ e.g. in tabs with Tools > Options > Language Settings > Default on top
+ remove “For the current document only”
+ drawback: displaces language settings (locale = english) and font settings (default = english)
+ how to deal with the character dialog? (Tomaz)
+ consequently we have to show all types at every time (Heiko)
+ could do that similar to fill styles (color, gradient, pattern...)
+ all types are needed in parallel so switching is bad (Tomaz)
=> more input needed
* Preserve style when pasting "alien" slides
+ > (a) silent rename of source master page and add it as new master page
+ > (b) dialog about name conflict
+ > (c) silent apply of standard page object from source to target master page.
+ d) apply target styles for objects that haven't been modified
+ we should finde a general guideline that also applies to Calc (Tomaz)
+ mostly you dont want a different style, meaning the source gets the target style on paste
=> more input needed
* Text body & Default paragraph in (main menu) > Styles
+ none, one or both?
+ expect also text body in the styles menu (Tomaz)
+ why not "Default"? https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/Writer_for_Students/Text_Body (bottom line)
=> replace "default paragraph" by "text body"
* Split Options/Formatting Aids/"Display of"
+ Feedback for patch needed
+ Display of > Hidden text works on select > character... > font effects > [ ] hidden
+ Fields > Hidden text - unclear, needs investigation
+ if both are needed we should rename one
=> separation looks promising (Tomaz)
