Present: Cor, Heiko

 * Objections to enlarged icons on hover in online help?
   + patch: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/60053/
   + The effect is really annoying and I can’t think of any user experience-related benefit this might have (Adolfo)
   + There are upvotes in our chats (Olivier)
   + sample page https://help.libreoffice.org/6.2/en-US/text/simpress/02/10080000.html?DbPAR=IMPRESS#bm_id3149050 
   + minor issue: all icons including the one on notification bars for example are enlarged on hoover
   => WFM, no reverting/modification needed (Cor, Heiko)

 * Image caption, inconsistency: caption for images is now "figure" and no longer "illustration"
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119738
   + WF, as there is no working solution
   + Serious concerns (Cor)
   + Issues due to equal translation of different captions 
   + keep the last used caption enabled over sessions resp. store with template (Heiko)
     + having no category like it is the fact for legacy documents could go with Illustration
   + looks good; want some more time though to investigate (Cor)
   + Captions and languages always were not friends, see bug 104089 (Lendo)
   => bring up to ESC to find a good solution code-wise

 * There isn't tool Gradient from toolbar Transformations on Sidebar
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119689 
   + WFM, no all features are needed on the sidebar (Heiko)
     + ideally the sidebar provides only a dropdown for predefined gradients
   + agree that the HIG says so (Cor)
     + it looks however that people start / want more and more available there..
   + would be nice to have this nice and useful tool on a more prominent position (Cor)
     + how about the context menu; needs investigations what happens when no gradient is active
   => WFM, if there is no good position for the feature

 * Add 'Insert Column Break' to context menu for multi-column-sections
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37276 
   => WFM (Cor, Heiko)

 * Direct formatting control text Highlighting mode <Esc> not toggling off
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119753 
   + WFM (Heiko, c5)
   + need more pondering (Cor)
   => postponed

 * Default set of Impress graphic styles
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94369 
   + proposal in c14, feedback needed
   => looks good (Cor)

 * No keyboard shortcuts for next/previous heading
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119665 
   + there is a command "Go to next table formula" but with no shortcut assigned
   + introducing a new UNO command for Next/Prev heading makes sense
   => change the summary accordingly; ideally with have one uno command for those actions with a modifier

 * Add "Calculate All" to menu "Data\Calculate"
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119671 
   + dont see a reason against this function (Cor)
   => go for it 

 * Default Page Margins - Revisited
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119395 
   + the default of 2cm is good since more users have the metric system
   + making the template depending on the locale setting is desirable
   + there is likely a request on BZ for settings according the locale (Cor)
   => DUP (or accept otherwise)
