Present: Amina, Heiko
Comments: Andreas, Thomas, Jack, Eike, Stuart, Cor, Gabor, Harald, Seth, Jan


  * switch location of "Increase Indent" and "Decrease Indent"
    icons on Writer toolbar
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=147524
    + makes sense (Jan)
    + most software start with increase (Amina)
    + first you have to increase before decrease is possible (Heiko)
    + compatibility is important, MSO has the button reverted
    + not a bug deal for UX to change as toolbar buttons are barely used (Amina)
    => let's do it

  * Redesign LibreOffice Options Start Page
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130083
    + no objection (Thomas), not a bad plan (Cor), difficult to pick (Jack)
    + no clear requirement, better not do it (Thomas, Jan)
    + proposed landing page is not beneficial to me (Amina)
    => WF

  * Navigator SB deck, 'Go to Page' Spin box is holding deck width too wide
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141728
    + moving the site number field underneath the dropdown makes sense (Amina)
    + would rather remove the buggy control (does not pick up the current
      page number, nor the "go to" page dialog input or next/previous page next
      to it) (Heiko)
    + create tickets on what's not working (Amina)
    => better move the control than do nothing

  * Calc: Delete Tools>Options>LibreOffice Calc>Compatibility page
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=143187
    + still required (Eike)
    + move to expert options (Heiko, Stuart)
    + move to default and pimp with MSO bindings (Gabor, Thomas)
    + pointless and confusing feature, with negative impact on usability,
      making false expectations to switch the full shortcut customization to
      some other layout- hiding as far as possible from users
      is best (Amina, Heiko)
    => move to expert option (if the effort is not too much higher than
       moving to Default)
