    + see also https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112324
    + Proposed HIG draft:
      + When the combobox/dropdown is on the main form, changes should not become effective until the user 
        leaves the control, or collapses the open widget.
      + On secondary dialogs changes are applied immediately, e.g. when another list entry is selected by 
        mouse wheel or arrow keys.
    + reasons: performance, don't care but MS doesn't function that way, safety as changes may not be intended
    + better always update immediately on any change (Heiko)
    + live preview is available in secondary dialogs (Jay)
    => keep the status quo and write HIG; but deveval first


 + Rulers for margins instead of padding
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=111779
   + current way is useful (Stuart, Jay)
   => design additional ruler "modes", responding to object content (e.g. padding)
      provide configuration (component View or Expert config) to toggle ruler behavior
