* Thicker border line than 9 pt or 5 cm
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122511
   + WFM (users who need larger frames could do that by rectangles) or have a larger maximum?
   + issue is about page > border (max 9pt) and shape | lines (5cm)
   + sidebar maximum for line width is 500pt
   + missing use case but also limiting to a non-sensible value is unclear
   + No objection to set wider limitation (Franklin)
   => accepted

 * Should be possible to customise menus or toolbars delivered with an extension
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=123590
   + faced the same problem (Franklin)
   + extensions are special solutions for a specific use case; 
     customization is needed for inbuilt options
   => keep ticket open

 * New wizard for filling bank checks
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=123599
   + some comments on BZ to handle it as extension
   => closed by OP as WF

 * Enable Find & Replace by format in Impress & Draw
 * Enable Find & Replace by Attribute in Impress & Draw
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92584
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92608
   + to find & replace objects (by any property) sounds weird; 
     better enhance the Navigator (and resolve as WF) (Heiko)
   + see also https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=100698
   + see also https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92603
   => make 92584 a duplicate of 92608
   => no negative effect from enhancing the existing F&R dialog, so +1

 * Properties to save with drawings
   + grid settings https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=78035
     + is saved and restored but global settings apply when changed (Regina)
   => treat as a bug
   + measure units: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=83325
   - measure units: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98453
   => both dup of 59068
   + drawing scale per page: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=59068
   => as a general rule of thumb we define defaults in T>O and allow document specific 
     values to be changed in dialogs (e.g. View > Fields vs. T>O>Writer>View)
