Present: Pedro, Cor, Heiko


 * Data loss risk referencing slides from external impress presentation (Menu Insert -> File, selecting link)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=51554 
   + make linked slides readonly (Heiko)
   + agreed, but allow users on confirmation to override (Cor), ideally per infobar as known from Writer
   => do that

* Can't select/pick multiples shapes or images in Writer/Calc/Impress/Draw with CTRL key
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=121967
   + switch from shift to ctrl (Heiko)
   + no objection but isn't ctrl for selecting images in the background in Writer? (Cor)
     + oh, it's Ctrl+ two clicks, so that doesn't block the proposed change
     + ctrl click/drop duplicates
   => looks as a good direction to move
   => involve Regina & Armin

 * The problem of drawing trapezoidal graphs
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=116672
   + introduce new shape
   + add capability to rotate text regardless MSO is missing it
   => done with https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122039

 * Replace the Bibliography Database by a dialog to manually input new sources and to fetch from online sources via identifiers for citations/bibliography
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=121958
   + rough requirements at https://nextcloud.documentfoundation.org/s/YkwaqWk7dynNgjP
   * request for Impress https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92572
   * meta ticket https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101258
   + drop bibliography completely (all)
