Present: Kompi, Heiko


* Rename tabbed layout to notebookbar
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125009
   => ask on the marketing ML for input
   ==> feedback "Tabbed Notebookbar" given, UX input done

 * Insert image not in a new paragraph but in the current position or as character
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45778
     + anchor as character and alignment "Base line at top" to comply with MS Word
     + q in ask.libreoffice.org
     + drawback of current alignment on paragraph is that more than one image adds on top of the other (Franklin)
   + see also https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87720
     + most word processors anchor as character
     + RFE: introduce an option how to anchor be default
   + provide user-defined defaults at tools > option (Csongor)
     + clutters options a bit (Franklin)
     + we could do it as expert option (Heiko)
   + alternatively keep the last used settings
     + might not work as you modify properties subsequently and we would have to store 
       properties at any time when changed
   => changing the default anchoring to 'as character' sounds good
   => providing agreement by ESC, ask the community and introduce the option when there is a split
      + Twitter: 31% To Page, 39% To Paragraph, 7% To Character, 
        23% As Character (some comments "it depends")
        + result: no clear picture
      + ESC: agreement, though better w/o additional option
   + better not touch and keep to paragraph (Kompi)
   + better "to character" for wrapping and since mouse positioning is broken,
     suggest for empty paragraph "to paragraph" and when inside text "to character" (Regina)
   => since users and use cases differ the best solution is to have an option (and maybe more for 87728)

 * Save icon breaks icon customization
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=98193
   + accept the drawback (Andreas, Heiko)
   + possible solutions: a) combine two/n icons in one with a propriatary format,
     b) split the UNO command into uno:SAVEEMPTY and uno:SAVEMODIFIED, c1) draw the decoration
     programmatically, c2) combine/overlay two icons
   + never change icons (Kompi)
   => WF, becuase no good solution and inappropriate effort

 * Provide an option to hide the animation effect
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124477
   + alternatively change the tree with details on animation into a table
     but this might exceed the sidebar width
   + option is rarely needed as most users do not have that many animations per slide
   + simple solution is an option "[x] Show animation type" (default = on)
   => go with the change

 * Option to turn off autocomplete text in quick find
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124774
   + WF or needsDevAdvice
   + like the idea as it is often confusing (Kompi)
   => needsDevAdvice with recommendation to WF if there is no central place to switch it off

 * Page settings missing a few paper sizes
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122696
   + adding too many options spams the list
   + not a big deal (Cor, Kompi), not convinced with 14 addiitonal options (Heiko)
   + even for DIN we have only A3-A6
   + it's easy to enter the paper dimension manually
   => ask the OP for a smaller selection with <5 items, eg. RA4, RA5

 * Formula result has different alignment than regular values
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124860
   + switch on "Number Recognition"?
   => discussion ongoing at BZ (ticket might be a WFM now, @Cor)
   => postpone / discuss on BZ
