Present: Patrick, Cor, Muhammad, Heiko
Comments from: Dieter, Cor, MikeK, Regina


 * There is no way to suppress Writer inserting blank pages to make page No. 1 a right-hand page when editing a document
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117231
   + show confirmation box (Dieter, Cor)
   + suppress odd/even values depending on page style (Heiko)
   + potentially solved with tdf#125682 (MikeK)
   => postponed and resolve if solved

 * Cloning a cell's format should also clone the format of the cell's comment
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130512
   + consistency with MSO or user expectation
   + "Format Painter" at MSO does not copy the comment's style as LibreOffice Calc
   + with complex comments lke "Test <b>Foo</b>" copied to a simple "Bar" is unclear
   + take the first characters maybe (Cor)
   + multiple formatting like <red>aaa</red><blue>bbb</blue> is not copied at all (Patrick)
     + but it works on Excel and takes the first character's format
   => do it

 * Add alignment controls to the sidebar
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130156
   + we have a nice alignment widget in the toolbar
   + no objection to the idea
   => do it

 * UI Create a better UX for "Tracking Changes" mode
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130840
   + +1 for a status icon, rest is unclear
   + please comment if my communication is not polite, see c4
   + in fact not easy to understand (Patrick, Cor)
   + Change in this direction: (Cor)
     + Apparently some things do not work. Developer time/effort... (Cor)
       + So it is useful to e.g. track adding a sheet. And OK, it cannot be removed.. so that should be explained.
       + So I changed the summary of this report. OK?
   + ideally look into the issue and make it actionable (Cor)
   => keep it for later

 * Double click page style, causes pages above "current page" to be changed
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101853
   + confirmation box is a good idea (Cor)
   + perhaps with "Don't show again" for the experts (Heiko)
   + context menu with an option "Apply to full document"
   + a page style is applied to the part of the document between hard breaks that define a page style
   + to apply it to only a 'selection' (one/more pages) needs that hard breaks etc are inserted automatically
   => do both confirmation box (with option to not show again) and context menu

 * Branding for 7.0
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130778
   + will be on this list until it's solved
   => write a message on the mailing list
