Present: Cor, Heiko
Comments: Regina, Mike, Eike


  * EDITING: The "Increase Indent" and "Decrease Indent" increment step should
    be the width of 3 space chars (using the default style font) when working
    in an xlsx document
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144991
    + indentation should depend on the default font size at three spaces
      + makes sense (Mike) and is what MSO does (Eike)
    + change the indentation when the default font is altered
      + rather not but offer new the defaults at the interactions (Mike)
    => no-brainer if it's a standard

  * Prototype UI for new Inking feature
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=146968
    + proposal to improve drawing capabilities (essentially bug 89369
      with a different approach)
    + functional difference apparently, unclear for other objects (Cor)
      + the "styles" are probably just combinations of attributes (Heiko)
      + combining frequently used attributes such as color and seldom like cap
        style into one "style" is probably not user-focused
      + there is bug 127348 related to this incl. a mockup (Heiko)

   * UI: PNG export dialog has radio button doesn't allow 'dimensions' or
     'DPI' to be set both
     + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144195
     + setting one attribute affects another; works for me (Regina, c8)
     + suggest a toggle button between mutually dependent settings meaning
       "auto adjust setting" (Regina)
     + afraid of side-effects, commented on bug 115464 incl. a mockup (Heiko)
     + welcome the suggested modification (Cor)
     => do it

   * Comment box arrows should be visually separate when pointing to the
     same line
     + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=86888
     + don't show any lines but highlight in author's color on focus (Heiko)
     + MSO cannot do zero length comments and selects the whole word,
       would be a prerequisite to see a comment without the pointing line (Cor)
     + show the line only when a comment is selected (Heiko)
     + NAB/INV since the comment becomes framed and the dashed line solid (Cor)
       + bug: dashed lines may become solid depending on spaces (Heiko)
     => resolve INV

   * No way for Glow and Soft Edge settings in drawing styles and in any dialogs
     + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=136123
     + mockup attached
     + if possible, we should remove the enabled checkbox and bind shadow on/off
       to distance >0;
     + like to have the default (Cor), maybe the other way around and on/off
       for the two options
     => do it
