Hi All,

After talking to a lot of people - it's really unclear what Choose Theme does
and AutoFormat.... seems to do what most people expect "manage themes" to do.
So suggestion is to purge Choose Theme (unless someone knows a real reason for
keeping it) and rename AutoFormat to Choose Theme or Apply Theme

Choose Theme:
View --> Toolbar --> Tools
4th Icon from the Right

Select a range of cells (doesn't matter what)
Format -> AutoFormat...

That AutoFormat... is incredibly powerful but I think the name makes it unused
(I use spreadsheet frequently, always thought Excel had a cool tool and had
literally no idea that LibreOffice had the same tool because "AutoFormat..." to
me does not imply anything like a theme.

Looking for ux-advice, feel free to close if you disagree.
