 * Undo/redo includes creating of paragraph/character style
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=133040
   + abandoning the undo feature for style _creation_ means also
     to not being able to undo unintentionally _deleted_ styles
     and _applying_ styles to the document is the main workflow
   + actual problem is the unexpected deletion (via undo), which we
     could prevent per confirmation box
   + annoying, however, and definitely in need for [ ] Don't show again
   => recommend to close as WFM

 * Create a Dialog that shows up on first boot of Writer/Calc/Impress for
   the user to pick its default UI
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117463
   + if the issue is just the presentation of different UI variants we could
     create a dialog for this purpose and drop the menu items
   + show info during installation
   + bad usability/marketing and WF (Stuart, Xavier)
   + UI variants have bad discoverability so +1 (Rizal)
   + if we introduce another NB, ideally per extension, it won't show up
     on this welcome dialog; the UI choice is the least important for new
     users; if we need to advertise per image we should consider a tab in
     tools > options > view (and remove the menu option) plus have thumbnails
     with the envisioned extensions (Heiko)
   => WF

 * Table Toolbar constant placing is now impossible
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122030
   + keep user-defined state/position for contextual TBs
   + many similar tickets, eg. tdf#36976 to have an option
   + "workaround": use notebookbar
   => make it a duplicate

 * Make "current selection" persistent in F/R dialogue
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=133480
   + see also tdf#132031
   + on/off depends on document status; clicking somewhere must change this
   => WF

 * Sound to verify document has been saved
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=133585
   + no clear workflow yet, no urgent need
   => keep it for a few more days, then WF

 * Pressing CTRL+W with a single document open closes LibreOffice
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=133542
   + browsers close (FF & Chromium), editors don't (Kate)
   + see also https://wiki.mozilla.org/Ctrl_W_not_close_app
     + about:config -> browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab
   + ctrl+w = uno:CloseWin -> WFM (Regina)
   + actually it goes back to start center, which closes per ctrl+w
   => WFM
