Present: Thomas, Jay, Stuart, Heiko


 * Design session on font handling
   + f'up to FOSDEM 
   + fine, good as 2nd

 * Design session on shortcut customization
   + tdf#115052 & co
   + a waste of time (jay, stuart)
   + UI part was part of last year's customization dialog that Muhammet didnt have time to work on (jay)
   + also good, lets do it 1st
   + tentative Friday 8pm GMT+1, ask on the ML


 * GSoC project "100 paper cuts"
   + top 10 of UX nitpicks to fix in a gsoc project
   + http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Re-Minutes-of-the-design-meeting-2018-Jan-31-td4232034.html
   + tdf#53300 (Pedro)
   + good idea, could be a bit more difficult than easyhack but not a full project (samuel on IRC)
   + we could ask on ML for everyone's top 10 issues and vote for it
   + perhaps restrict to a certain module (Jay)
   + go ahead? no objection

Last week(')s todo's

 * Standard palette rework
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=114719
   => take this palette and submit AI Stuart
   + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/48887/
   + objection? (1 yes vs. 3 no)
   => submit

 * Paragraph selection with or without breaks
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=68271
   + comparison done (Jay), workflow test pending (Stuart)
   + don't change (cor, stuart, thomas)
   + consistency with other programs is a plus (jay)

 * New bitmaps for the Gallery
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=114817
   + ideally we get the new and old bitmaps into some kind of voting
   + https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1O0-09bhr0dHQ3VQTED2wFM9WBgEY5v-4VM7iMSS4BVY
   + 10 replies so far, let's see if more people vote
   => 16 replies, patch should get prepared -> Andreas?


 * Bypassing import dialogs
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=74580
   + load a CSV in Calc shows always the import dialog
   + not too special workflow to read many documents
   + asked some people, most are against the idea as command line and macro exists
   + special uno:command are an option
   + checkbox in open dialog to bypass import dialog (jay)
   + use <ctrl> or <shift> to bypass dialog when it is intended to appear (jay)
     in the file dialog when pressing open button, clicked the file in start center, or drag and drop
   + should be a generic idea meaning pressing shift on open, or whatever, works also when implemented
     in for instance the export to png dialog (heiko)
   + rather improve the import dialog with use of parser settings saved to profile (stuart)
   + introduce some kind of heuristics that detects the format and only asks if unsure (csongor)
     + simplest heuristic would be the URL and after first time reading file from this place
       the dialog doesnt pops-up again (jay) perhaps plus a filename comparison (./file1.csv=./file2.csv)
   => comment ticket with ideas and remove keyword

 * Template changer (continued from previous meetings)
   + ...
   + suggest to make the tc working as loading a template with the exception 
     to not override what the user modified (Heiko)
   + document themes are worth to consider as alternative solution (stuart)
   => double-check MSO (Thomas)
