Present: Tomaz, Heiko

 * New meeting time
   + 7pm UTC is too late for Turkey and more eastern countries
   + bi-weekly switching?
   + no preference but not too late (Tomaz)
   => decision postponed


 * Table protected cells: Add possibility to disable warning message
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=120726
   + tend to disagree as Calc works similarly (Heiko)
   + Against warning deactivation, maybe less intrusive with an infobar? (Thomas in c3)
     + better do it with the status bar since the status may vary from cell to cell
   + alternatively, use a special background (greyed out) for protected cells 
     also combined with field shading on/off and print preview
   + introduce some "Don't show again" checkbox (plus Tools > Options stuff)

 * Undo and redo enhancement
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=120809
      + MS Office handles this better: it usually gets chunks of ~3 words as I type; ideally LO should detect clauses (Adolfo)
   + needsDevEval (Cor, Thomas)
   + unclear use case as selection could be cut (Sophie)
   + word takes all typing input unless enter is pressed or auto correction or other functions add themselves to the undo buffer
   => we could improve the situation with an option of semantic chunks which takes all input until
      comma, semicolon, color etc. into one undo buffer (optionally)

 * Introduce Conditional formatting tab at the sidebar
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90116
   + WF as it cannot be modal (+1 Thomas)
   + modal speaks strictly against the sidebar
   + we could present some kind of preset at the sidebar which is define in the dialog
     + but that's not the actual request
   => WF

 * Some Selected Objects Flash/Blink
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94147
   + introduce an option?
   + there is Office.Common.VCL.AnimationsEnabled=true which makes the walking ants standing still in Calc (Tomaz)
   + Writer has also a Header/Footer animation which is not working yet (tdf#92450) (Tomaz)
   => let's add flashing frame on/off to this option and make it accessible to users, e.g. "[ ] Distraction  free"
