  * INDEX: Table of figures Hyperlink points to caption, should point to
    parent frame
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141651
    + depends on "Create from Captions" or "Create from Object Names" whether
      the object is in focus or the caption; expect always the target
      in view (Dieter)
      + link from ToF should behaves like link from a cross reference
    + expect different behavior since caption and object might
      be separate (Heiko)
    + change behavior of ToF to behaves like cross reference (Dieter)
      + with "Insert reference to" specification?- isn't it what
      Display offers; more options sounds like over-engineering (Heiko)
    + how about renaming? "Create From" -> "Reference to" and "Object names"
      -> "Figure"/"Table"/etc.
    => no further input, comment and remove keyword

  * Do not display "Table" toolbar by default in Impress
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142489
    + +1 (Telesto)
    + hide Drawing toolbar and show Table at this place (Heiko)
    => do it

  * UI: Table properties borders doesn't show top border if row selected
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142441
    + likely NAB for performance reasons but OTOH maybe related
      to tdf#142440 (Heiko)
    => keep ticket for dev advice

* Inconsistent use and non-antialiased graphical representation and
   of rotation wheels
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142514
   + drop the dialcontrols a) don't b) on sidebar c) everywhere
   + agree with sidebar but not dialogs (Heiko)
   => no further input, keep ticket

* The macro-UI is confusing and not intuitive to me
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141975
   + what is needed?
     + properties of the selected sheet at sidebar (johnks)
       + loosely related to the request to rework the UI (Heiko)
       + UNO object inspector might cover this (Alain)
   + aged UI; macro edition, management and execution should be separate;
     use external IDE for some languages such as Python where many
     advanced features are standard (Alain)
     + external tools wouldn't be integrated making the execution and
       debugging difficult
     + keeping a MVP is necessary so rework should consider external
       tools and update the UI conservatively (Heiko)
   => mockup needed
