Comments from: Dieter, Thomas, Roman, Dave, Cor


 * Feature request: Endnote by chapter near end of document
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=102835
   + request makes sense and could be implemented without too many changes to the UI
     if footnotes/endnotes become part of the ToC > Type list; adding the first 
     endnote means to add a ToC for endnotes at the end oof the document, related 
     to the whole document. User should be able to edit this ToC and move it somewhere
     else, like at the end of the chapter, and define the scope for just the chapter
   + alternatively, we could have two different endnote commands, one for the whole 
     document at the end (as today), the other for the chapter at the end of the chapter; 
     maybe that's the better approach as ToC have much more options
   => green from UX

 * Option to show track changes in margin is missing
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34355
   + use sidebar (experimental enabled) to show changes; update the sidebar 
     with a column of the actual change
   => idea to the ticket, remove UX

 * Change .uno: command for Protect Cells in Writer from .uno:Protect to .uno:CellProtection
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130783
   + <node oor:name=".uno:Protect" oor:op="replace"> exists for Writer and Calc
   + due to the same names the command take the same icons, which is the issue here
   + request is to rename one of the two UNO commands
   => sounds like plan

 * Improve UX around info message "Missing hyphenation info - please install the hyphenation package for locale "de"
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131233
   + useful (Cor)
   + we could add a button to the toolbar that opens the respective help file
   => documentation issue

 * new menu item: DOCUMENT, or a new sub-menu item FILES / Outline   (enhancement, development)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131182
   + file vs. document unclear (Dieter)
   + unclear what items should go into this menu (Thomas)
   + -1 (Roman, Dave)
   => WF

 * Remove More Fields sub menu and move its content to the parent form/dialog main menu
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131239
   + submenu has some specialized option of the more general item above
   + no benefit when we move items out of the submenu
   + drawback is a large menu
   => WFM
