Present: Sascha, Heiko
Comments from: Bogdabn, Mike, Stuart, Eike


 * Page break editing: "Text Flow > Breaks" needs clearer wording
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134440
   + Paragraph style > Text flow > _With_  page style (unclear if it applies to 
     before or after the break) 
   + "Continue with page style" (Bogdan)
   + "Next/Following" could do it as well but personally fine with what we have (Heiko)
   => no further opinion so keeping ticket open

 * Hyperlink colours cannot be changed by changing Hyperlink style
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134456
   + Intended for Calc cells w/o autoformatting (Mike)
   + would be great to use Hyperlink character style in Writer (Heiko)
     but off-topic here
   + cannot follow the supposed benefit of hyperlink cell style and
     would remove this (Heiko)
   => up to discussion on BZ

 * Keybinding is defined by UI language instead of locale setting
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134470
   + use keyboard locale (Eike)
   + no dropdown in tools > options > language to change the kb layout (Heiko)
     + and would clutter the UI if more controls are added
   + could be done as expert setting since the kb layout probably never changes
   => go for it

 * UI Confusing icon names for Background Color / Highlight Color
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134432
   + rename Character Highlight Color / Paragraph Background Color
   + support the idea (Heiko)
   => do it

 * Add control grouping "labeling" to NB Tabbed Interface
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134481
   + Tooltips are sufficient, WF (Stuart) 
   + essential part of the contextual groups (Heiko)
   + drawback is vertical size
   => undecided discussion; keep open
