Comments from: Regina, Adolfo, Stuart, Telesto and other


 * GSoC Additions
   + https://yusufketen.com/post/2020-06-29-libreoffice-gsoc-week-4-report/
   + windowed frame for the individual extensions
   + more white-space needed
   + voting back-channel minor priority
   + sorting ideally done on client side
   + discussion on whether to resize or not
     + resize to get more text from the description in particular for
       large fonts or small screens (Patrick)
     + also needed to get a larger image
     + we don't resize per HIG (Heiko)
     + two use cases- would require a splitter
     + images are not scaled down and would become blurry (Yusuf)
   + dialog always opens with a context such as at the Gallery for gallery content
     or at the spellchecker to load more dictionaries etc., meaning no need
     to switch the tag pre-filter

 * UI: Make the setting text wrap more accessible
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134389
   + WFM (Heiko)
   + add to context menu (Cor)
   + but fine to resolve the ticket without adding to context menu since
     we make wrap the default (Cor)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134369
   + enable wrap by default
   => no objection, do it

 * "Safe mode" is meaningless for most end-users
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=133743
   + %PRODUCTNAME (Troubleshooting) (Adolfo)
   + for comment 12 see bug 120269 (Telesto)
   + "Safe mode" is the perfect term (Muhammet, Patrick)
   + two commands one for "clean user profile" the other to access the "safe mode" (Patrick)
   => WF/WFM

 * No warning on form design mode when exporting to pdf (design mode prevents data in controls to be exported)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94596
   + see comment 12f
   + no use case to export to ODF the design only
   => always switch to edit mode before printing (and ideally back)

 * Missing bracket matching support
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112898
   + worth to do for Basic?
   + one of the basic features of IDEs (Muhammet)
   + acc. comment 7 requested for Writer documents
   + wouldn't mind if implemented (Cor)
   + out of scope (Heiko)
   + disagree (Patrick), but also it's not worth to implement
   => resolve with comment "nice feature but too low priority"
     could be solved with a grammar checker -> extension
