Comments: MikeK, Stuart


  * Added slide masters disappear from list after unassigning it from slides
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99539
    + keep master when no slide uses it?; it's just a click away in the Master
      Pages deck at Recently Used
    + why doesn't it show up in recently used? (Muhammet)
      + actually it's unreliable, sometimes applied masters are shown
        sometimes not
      + what's used in the current slide is not shown under recently
    + if "recently used" work we do not need it under "used in presentation"
    => comment

  * HTML conversion: fields always shaded
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137174
    + fields don't have a background color but are highlighted per code
    + there is no good reason to show the internal highlighting when
      opening the exported html in a browser (Heiko)
    + exporting to a file shouldn't affect the actual document; same happens
      in MSO
    + Export doesn't take the highlighting in LibreOffice but SaveAs
      does (Muhammet)
    => bug in the save filter

  * The value of “Paragraphs” does not count blank paragraphs. In the
    “Statistics” tab
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=138434
    + counting number of characters doesn't take blanks into count,
      which makes sense
    + doing the same on paragraphs and ignoring empty is reasonable
    + option to show anyway or additional info somewhere?
      + comparing the number of filled and empty paragraphs is an indicator
        of proper use of styles (Heiko)
      + better give a feedback / confirmation box / just a label in the dialog
        with "you have empty paragraphs" (Muhammet)
    => add some information to the workflow

  * calc gives no visual clue about enter/edit cell mode
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63374
    + request to reconsider in c9
    + changing the background color in edit mode sounds like a plan,
      could be optional with automatic = none and any other color would be shown
      when in edit mode (Muhammet, Heiko)
    + Cursor should update immeidately
    => do it

  * Numbering List Presets in Bulgarian (4x), Russian (4x), Serbian (4x)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=128640
    + add Cyrillic to T>O>L (and hide until this option is checked like CTL/CJK)
      + strong objection since CTL/CJK make enough trouble, see
        tdf#104318 (MikeK)
      + not easy to find and error-prone (Muhammet)
    + add a "More" entry to the list that brings up further options in the
      dropdown similar to paragraph styles in the toolbar
      + sounds like a plan (Muhammet)
      + used choices could be added to the default list (Rizal)
    => let's do it
