Present: Cor, Heiko
Comments: Roman, Regina, Stuart, Ilmari, Adolfo, Eike


  * Support for working with online CC0 photo gallery source images
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145740
    + do as extension or implement in source code? gsoc maybe?
    + out of scope (Roman)
    + linking to external sources is often doomed from the beginning (Cor)
    => moved to extension
    => created a META ticket for similar ideas tdf#145878

  * Create a "Duplicate sheet" option in LO Calc
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145745
    + (hidden) workflow per shift/ctrl+click (Regina)
    + solve by introducing a new function or via static label explaining
      the functionality (Heiko)
    + Move is necessary for large databases (Eike)
    + would introduce uno:DuplicateSheet (Cor)
    => do it; easyhackable

  * Cell reference are highlighted black when putting = into a cell
    and clicking a different cell
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145812
    + convenience feature if one can click another cell to overwrite
      but at the same time + to continue a formula
    + MS Excel does behave the same but does not show the selection
    + complaints are rare, behavior exists forever (Cor)
    + not showing the selection shouldn't hurt too much (Heiko)
    + difference to Excel is that we highlight only the last cell
      while Excel does all (with different color coding)
    + Excel highlighting is also not straight-forward (Cor)
    + lot of effort for not much benefit (Heiko)
    => WF

  * "Insert > Object > Bar Code..." menu should be "QR and Barcode..."
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145728
    + .uno:InsertQrCode ("Bar Code...") and .uno:EditQrCode "Edit Bar Code..."
    + Bar code is accepted too acc. Wikipedia (Ilmari)
    + inconsistency should be solved (Ming)
    + (Insert) "QR and Barcode..." (Stuart, Adolfo)
    => do it

  * Redesign of Start Center user interface
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145782
    + out of scope (Stuart)
    + do we want the start center to provide file management functionality
      such as copy, move, rename, delete or is it a list of recent files solely?
    + many user requests for file management besides this request
    + unclear four columns proposal, otherwise we should keep the
      start center simple
    + no use case to browse through all documents on a drive in all directories
      (in addition to the file manager)
    + showing more properties of a document might be interesting (eg last editor,
      number of pages, etc.) but not as a full size column; better go with
      a (lengthy) tooltip
    => resolve WF
