Present: Roman, Cor, Heiko


 * Meeting in general (Cor)
   + invite people personally
   + regular meetings are a good idea (Cor)


 * Alignment of images
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126857
   + new command to center vertically and horizontally requested
   + seeking for a nice term
   + too many options as suggested later in the ticket is too much for the menu
   + "Center on Page/Slide" or "Equidistant" (Stuart)
   + I agree with an idea. (kompi)
   => "Center on Page/Slide" (and rename Center to Middle, Centered to Center)

 * Find & Replace should optionally also make use of AutoCorrect single or double quote substitutions for easier keyboard search entry
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126752
    + would require to doit in a general way, ie. all autocorrected terms are found when searching for the  basic version
    + maybe an option is nice but then working in the dialog only
    - disagree F&R new options. let's will be simply (kompi)
    + technically challenging as the search has to be run twice
    + users may expect the search to result in <>n found results of <'> and a messagebox that the document contains of
      <m> autocorrected places with <"> and a button to search for this term (Heiko)
    + simply show a message that this input might have been autocorrected by <foo> (Cor)
    => let's go with the simple solution

 * Add option to show 'Apply Style' menu in plain text
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62926
   + extra option or combination with existing
   + unclear what controls would be affected (Stuart, c9)
   + afraid of too many options if there are more controls (Heiko)
   + Tools > Options > View is across modules and "Show preview of styles" would be Writer-only (Heiko)
   => run a poll on the blog/ml (Cor)

 * Ability to forbid the use of direct formatting
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53847
   + user customization is king, no need to ship another UI variant
   + do as MUFFIN (Stuart), yes but per extension then (Heiko)
      + bad idea, users should to have the ability to choose (kompi)
   + prefer the internal solution (Cor)
   + alternatively, introduce an option to switch from Formatting (toolbar) to Formatting (Styles) as the default
   + or close the ticket as WFM since we have the styles focused TB (and maybe kill the direct formatting options from this TB)
   => close as WFM if we change the existing toolbar

 * Rework of Safe Mode dialog
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=120269
   + https://nextcloud.documentfoundation.org/s/Zj8nsETFTyPgeEB
   + https://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/design/msg09116.html
   + pls reply to my comment on the ML (Cor) - will do (Heiko)
   => a few comments, keep it boiling for another week
