 * Questionable Default for Bullet Sizing
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92657
   + issue descender of Opensymbol larger than Liberation not confirmed in c22 but c24
   + difference between uno bullet_on and uno bullet_style
   + how to progress?
   + wfm (cannot confirm the issue), nab (if there is a difference it's up to the font designer),
     wf (smaller bullet size is not a solution)
   + only solution is to use the actual paragraph font for the bullets; and accept no bullet if the font 
     has none (unclear if bullet character is detectable)
   + maybe we can cut the bullet height at the line height from the paragraph (Patrick)
   => remove UX

 * Possibility to have several grids activable and deactivable easily (as in Inkscape for instance)
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130995
   + wfm as users can create grids in templates and customization of multiple grids become hairy
   + no opinion (Patrick)
   + make it easier with an UNO command that opens a dialog to set the grid size (Andreas)
   + would be nice to have in the notebookbar (Patrick)
   + also feasible to have it at the sidebar, perhaps page/slide
   => do it

 * Unify terms in dialog to search text
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131369
   + a) "Match case" or "Case Sensitive", but consistently
     + Match case (Adolfo)
     + We _match_ cases (Mathew)
     + many other apps use match (Patrick)
   + b) Title style capitalization in AutoRedaction dialog
     + defintiely needed to change
   + c) "Regular expression" (no plural)
     + singlular is better
   => easyhack

 * Musical notes as a gallery
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131418
   + easy to include the notes and a respective template, for sure not as perfect as dedicated apps
   + or wf as there is no immediate need and perhaps out of scope
   + follow the survey from https://design.blog.documentfoundation.org/2015/04/02/libreoffice-design-session-shapes/
     and do as extension (Andreas)
   => out of scope

 * Wrong text highlight color when export document to doc/docx
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125268
   + WFM (Tamaz, c7); more detailled warning perhap
   + introduce a MSO compatible palette and show only this at character properties
     when a flag is set at tools > options > compatibility (Gabor)
   + patch has been submitted meanwhile but might be reverted
   + we must solve the issues of other apps; limiting ourself is bad;
     at any point in time MSO might change the behaviour
   + rather than coping with the problem we should inform in detail what 
     setting will fail when saving as MSO; would require some kind
     of document analyzer, meaning a lot of effort
   => comment on ticket

 * Index: Implement letter by letter alphabetising
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131315
   + different/additional sorting algorithm; prolly a dev topic
   + UI wise the new sorting option could go to "key type" so no issue when it is introduced
   => go for it

 * Cannot modify preinstalled galleries
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=131529
   + no gallery at all would feel like a broken app
   + installing galleries without a tight integration is not an easy task neither for non-beginners
   + actual issue of making shipped galleries writable could be solved in a different way
   => discuss at ESC
