Present: Fellow Jitsier, John, Heiko
Comments: Telesto, Dieter, Stuart, Adolfo, Krunoslav, Italo, Cloph


 * Writer zoom at "page width", option to eliminate 3d page edge and gutter
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87842
   + minimizing the gutter makes the view not like a page anymore,
     would result in issues with the rulers, and requires some effort
     to implement => WF (Heiko)
   + no further input sind 2017
   => WF

 * Add shortcut keys to each Sidebar Tab to open its content panel(s)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=84502
   + use ctrl+alt+<sequential number> for sidebar decks and reorganize
     for max congruence across modules (Heiko)
   => patch is in work, late minute input still welcome

 * BORDERS "Line arrangement" display shows "Set no borders" when dialog is
   irrespective of actual border setting
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135359
   + check border preset button according the applied options?
   + after clicking a preset it is not highlighted yet at all
   + support the request (Telesto, Dieter)
   => do it with low importance

 * UI: Make the automatic caption functionality/settings more accessible
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135411
   + autocaption is perfectly fine at tools > options
   => NAB

 * Sequential name for objects in Draw and other apps (and total count in
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135312
   + more statistics needed as requested in tdf#123083 for Writer?
   + provide insights with update to the Navigator; duplicate to tdf#90244 (Stuart)
   + would be nice to have informative statistics at the statusbar across modules
   => ticket is resolved now

 * [MOCKUP] LibreOffice "Format" menu mockup
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135417
   + good idea, nice to have shorter first level menus (Heiko)
   + important is consistency across modules; looks logical (John)
   + changing the menu requires a broad consensus (Heiko)
   + ideally we have the opportunity to switch the menu, see tdf#120132
   => complete it, wait for more input, investigate optional solution

 * Alternative for brand font
   + Sofia Sans (https://github.com/lettersoup/Sofia-Sans), Inria Sans, FiraGO
     (ex Fira Sans), Manrope (Adolfo)
   + IBM Plex Sans (Krunoslav)
   + as a text processor we may also consider serif fonts for the brand image
     (not necessarily needed on the tagline) (Heiko)
   + Vegur is pretty complete in the latest version; better seek for complementing
     fonts that covers for example Arab, Hebrew, etc. (Cloph, Italo)
   => input welcome

 * Next year GSoC project
   + seeking for topics that design/UX can prepare and advertise
   + for example: Table of Contents (tdf#135388), Bibliography,
     Functions deck (tdf#92416)...
   => AI: write a message to the mailing list
