Present: Heiko
Comments: Stuart, Thomas, Mike, et al.


  * Impress: change Custom Slide Show toolbar icon to dropdown
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142613
    + add UNO command / widget that lists custom slideshows and run it on click
    => no objection, do it

  * Want character width scale button+mini-dialog
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142827
    + no requirement / little benefit (Stuart)
    + +1, users want quick access (Thomas)
    + -1, too many features spoil the party; only frequently used
      attributes need to be on toolbars (Heiko)
    + should be available but not shown by default (Eyal)
    + unclear if "text-scale" can be a percentage of default font metric
      to horizontally scale either a Text run 'T1' or to a Paragraph 'P1' (Stuart)
    => subject to provision of percentage, let's do it

  * Split the current "Help" menu into three separate top-level menus
    (instead of one) to separate help content, bug-reporting content,
    and 'about' content
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142830
    + no benefit (Stuart)
    + no user has been struggling with the Help menu (Mike)
    + first, root level items should organize the menu not give
      access to seldom used function; introducing an inbuilt bugtracking
      feature might be interesting but not at a different (sub-)menu (Heiko)
    => WF

  * There is no provision to export/import user-settings
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=52387
  * Make configuration extensionizable
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59493
    + exporting the configuration makes not much sense (in contrast
      to what said in bug 59493, c5 (Heiko)
    + topic is delicate regarding privacy/security
    + unclear use case; for personal use the registrymodification.xcu
      can be copy/pasted right now
    => WF
