Present: Franklin, Heiko


 * Wrong behavior using template via "Open Template"
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=104074
   + rename _Open_ template to _Edit_  (Franklin)
   + File > New > Templates... unclear and should be renamed to "From Template..."
   + File > Templates > Manage Templates dialog now only has the feature to new from template.  
     should provide more features (like renaming, editing...) to "manage" these templates (Franklin)
   + alternatively rename to "New From Template..." but we would go back once the managing functions are implemented
   => go with the renaming of Open to Edit only; AI: check other tickets for template managing functions

 * TEMPLATES -- "open new" instead of "open" // at "Templates / Manage Templates"
 * Writer TEMPLATES -- renaming menu titles to be more intuitive -- TEMPLATES
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=123216
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=123178
   => dup of tdf#104074

 * When opening the navigator, the caret is no longer positioned on the list
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122900
   + see c3, c5
   + wiki on shiortcuts https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Shortcut_Keys_for_Writer is not up to date
   + guideline on how F6 works for the sidebar https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Design/SideBar
   + however, accessing the styles per F11 jumps directly to the list
   => lets have it as requested in the ticket; opening the Navigator with F5 should focus the first list item;
      but going per F6 through the controls starts at the Navigator's toolbar

 * Remove option to adjust icon size at the Notebookbar
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122799
   + NB is not a replacement for standard toolbar and rather than having customization
     we/the community should provide different NB variants
   + agree (Franklin)
   => kill it with fire

 * notebookbar additional settings for label arrangement
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=123171
   + WFM, see also https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122799 (icon size)
   => see above; no customization for NBs

 * Menubar -> Edit -> Comment group
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=123255
   + Edit > "Edit Hyperlink" below "Comments" and View > "Show Comments" below "Track Changes"
   + always being careful when known menu structure is changed (Heiko)
   + both are part of the review process but it makes not a big difference (Franklin)
   => do not change unless more people agree (keep ticket open)

 * Styles Menubar show icons
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=123261
   + requested is to add the existing styles icons (see formatting (styles) toolbar) to the menu
   => no objection, good idea
