Present: Rizal, Cor, Heiko


* Correct implementation or remove the Navigation toolbar
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115817
   + dock it (c24) (Stuart, Cor)
   + make it experimental (Heiko)
   => dock at the standard toolbar because there is a bit more space left

 * Behavior is not consistent when saving with unknown file extension
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=111071
   + saving a new file adds the extension, changing it at the OS level doesn't => WFM (Heiko)
   + this patch would end in the inability to call a file foo.ab, which is awkward
     + of course not when "Automatic file name extension" is checked (Cor)
   => treat as Windows-only bug 

 * Names of Drawing Objects can be Deleted
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122477
   + allow empty names (=WF) or revert to default (=NEW)
   + mostly a Navigator issue where empty names make an object hidden
   + renaming objects to existing names is not possible, except for empty names
   + ideally we have a flag "Hide in Navigator and ToC" and revert the name to 
     the default on deletion but that takes some effort for less benefit (Heiko)
   + deleting names is a user action so intentionally done (Cor)
   => not a bug (Cor, Regina)

 * Writer does not include a key combination to insert thin spaces (U+200A)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=121596
   + add _one_ small white space, maybe run a poll
   + alt+space actives window management on Ubuntu (Cor) & Windows too (Rizal)
   + since ctrl+space is also dangerous we should take ctrl+alt+space
   => go for it
   => marketing/documentation could create a nice cheat sheet for shortcuts

 * Explain in the style dialog that Outline & Numbering options are disabled...
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122637
   + agree with Buovjaga's idea of static text (though we'd better provide means
     to enable the controls, ie. link to the other dialog)
   => next to Outline with "Disabled unless Tools > Chapter Numbering: Paragraph Style is set to None"
      or ... "Disabled if the Paragraph Style is linked with Chapter numbering in Tools > ..."
      ideally with a link at "Tools...>" to the respective dialog
