Present: Cor, Heiko


 * Display components of formula without edit
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124102
   + WFM (Heiko, Eike, Cor)
   + alternative is the detective
   => resolve as WFM

 * EDITING: Need Default Keyboard Shortcut for Strike-Through
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64849
   + ctrl+K suggested but not working
   + no need as customization works well; ctrl+k used for hyperlink (Dave)
   + though some apps provide a shortcut it's not one of the most frequently used features
   + we are short on good shortcuts, ctrl+k or - are occupied
   => keep it for customization

 * UI: the wording around tools - options - LibreOffice Calc - Formula - Recalculation on File Load is questionable
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124784
   + use "ODF spreadsheet" (without "not saved...") and update help (Cor)
     + "recent" was it years ago
   + show the recalculation option with an infobar in case of "prompt user" (and make it the default)
   => go with this potential easyhack

 * Inform user when a font style doesn't exist (bold, italic,...)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=100900
   + WFM, expert users know their fonts and there arent too many avergae fonts without bold/italic (Heiko)
   + +1 for the idea (Thomas, Tomaz, Cor, kellnerp)
     Cor on the fence - later on..
   + potential solutions
     + use icons with subtle decorations (small star at the edge when bold not included) with drawback at customization
     + add some kind of identification to the icon, eg. a frame
     + just have a tooltip "this weight is calculated"
       + icon decoration and tooltip dont work with menus (Format > Text > Bold or Style [F11] > Emphasis)
     + show an infobar when the file is loaded and fonts are included that neeed math
       + however.. requires to scan the doc, scan present fonts
       + and inform user if font is used, or only if font style, not present, is used
       + and mention font names too...
    + rather lots of things to do/consider for situations where we must consider that the involved user
      should have knowledge..
   => keep open, favorize infobar to show missing fonts and missing font properties

 * PARAGRAPH BORDER: Modification border always adds a new border
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124748
   + "Merge with next paragraph" off by default
   + wouldnt change the default for rare case(s) (Cor)
   => closed as NAB (Stuart)

 * tabs in calc (for sheets) and draw (for layer) style
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124572
   + and https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=97555 for multi selection
   + proposed solutions are not perfect (Cor)
   + respect the system theming (Heiko)
   => WFM (Cor, Heiko)
