Present: Jay, Heiko


  * Participation in the design meeting declined
    + no response to the question last week
    + will ask people directly what we can improve


 * Optionally disable context dependency of toolbars
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=107388
   + bug already present to enable/disable contextual behaviour of toolbars
   => DUP
 * Change sidebar deck label 'Properties' to 'Formatting'
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=88742
   + for - Heiko, Adolfo, Stuart
   + against - Jay
   + Alternatives: Attributes, Features, Characteristics
   + To discuss: rename also the context and main menu entries from Properties to the new term
   => awaiting additional opinions/comments

 * Enhance spell checking with 'rarely used' flag/book
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90006
   + Tools > Spelling > Options... > User-defined, New allows to add as user dictionaries
   + unknown words can be assigned to any of the predefined dics 
   + users can separate rarely used or usecase-wise 'project related' items to different dictionaries
   => WFM

 * Rotation of images with frames (ie. caption)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=107003
   + Do not enable the 'relative' option when the object receives a frame?
   + Without releative property the image is cropped if rotated or when the frame is resized
   + Option a) unset relative settings before the operation
   + Option b) let the user decide whether the relative setting is enabled or not in the caption dialog (feedback)
   + none is a good solution
   => WFM

 * GSoC'17 Special Caharcters, Input line missing (Stuart)
   + Loss of functionality reported at the ux-advice ML http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/GSOC-work-on-Special-Character-dialog-td4217853.html
   + Strongly against the request to keep the input line for combination of characters (Heiko)
   => Please file a bug report that blocks to bug tdf#109207 to discuss the topic
