  * Calc editing - autofill step-size: suggest no increment if the sequence
    initially contains only one cell.
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94669
    + autofill for single cells continues (1,2,3...) and the request is to
      continue (1,1,1...)
    + not wrong, known behavior, copying is simple, WF (Justin)
    + Excel and GSheet do as requested (Ruediger)
    + Excel offers options what to do (Ruediger)
      + like that (Adi)
    + Calc always does +1 for lists even wrongly for 1,3,5 (Heiko)
    + would expect what is requested in the ticket (John, Adi, Heiko)
    + look up one field and take this as basis for the increment (Ruediger)
    + get more input from experts (Cor)
    + with ctrl pressed the selected cells are copied, so the expected
      behavior works out of the box (Ruediger)
    => accept

  * Integrate Auto Text to gallery sidebar
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=147344
    + unclear use case for this request
    + sidebar should be plain in general, and autotext is not really
      a gallery item; plus, scrolling through a list and picking an item
      and drag it into the document is way slower than entering a few
      characters and pressing F3
    + but it improves discoverability (John)
      + but not too much, see Sounds (Heiko)
    => WF

  * Excel keyboard shortcut bindings for Calc
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98255
    + would be nice to have an easy transition (Adi)
    + could be part of tools > options > calc > compatibility > key
      bindings (Cor)
      + not the same function as customization (Heiko)
    => extra topic, no decision needed

  * Keyboard shortcut conflict: Ctrl+F5
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=146906
    + in Base, ctrl+F5 enters the "form input mode" and tab jumps through the
      different text boxes, for example
    + ctrl+F5 toggles the sidebar in Writer, Calc etc.
    + accessibility topic, would be nice to discuss with experts (Ruediger)
    + is there an industry standard (Adi, John)
    + assign uno:ToggleControlFocus to alt+F5, shift+ctrl+f6 or leave empty?
    + shift+ctrl+f6 is disabled and cannot be assigned; alt+f5 is free
    + alt+f5 switches to window mode in Ubuntu and Windows (Ruediger)
    => use shift+ctrl+f6

  * UI: Default file format on export mess (Draw:GIF; Calc: WEBP:
    Writer:EPUB; Impress:PDF)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=147373
    + Draw: TIF, Impress: WMF, Calc: XHTML and Writer:
      "Writer Indexing Export" (Tomaz)
    + probably randomly chosen (Lubos)
    + PDF and EPUB are listed in special menu and could be removed anyway,
      would use PNG in all modules (Heiko, Cor)
    + Writer and Impress/Draw: PDF, Calc: PDF or CSV (John, Ruediger)
      + "Export As" is just a shortcut to what is available in the export filters
    => comment on ticket
