Present: Muhammet, Ruyaince, Patrick, Sascha, Heiko,
Listen only: Steve, Rivan, Rizal
Comments: Adolfo, Stuart, Cor, Maxim et al.


 * LibreOffice Impress Template Contest by the Indonesian Community
   + https://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/design/2020/msg00122.html
   + we should remove some when adding new
   + drop (sorted): Impress, Sunset, Lush Green, Alizarin, Bright Blue,
     Classy Red (Heiko)
   + keep number low is a good idea (Muhammet)
   => create ticket and continue discussion there

 * Rename "Track Changes" under "View" to "Tracked Changes"
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137808
   + "Tracked Changes" is an advantage (Adolfo)
   + do we need the two commands anyway? (Sascha)
     + yes, it was introduced as this to make all users happy (Heiko)
     + makes sense (Muhammet, Patrick)
     + irritating to have two menu items; would remove one (Sascha)
   => go with "Show Tracked Changes" (for View > TC) (Patrick votes here)

 * TOOLBAR: New image toolbar
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87362
   + c12, see also bug 120985
   + image toolbar is implemented (87362 => WF),
     consequently 120985 needs to be WF (Heiko)
   => no opinion

 * UI request for 'Merge Cells' control in 'Format - Cells' window
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101835
   + merge action is just not a _attribute_ of a cell, WF (Heiko)
   + too far away for normal users; not expected there (Patrick)
   + menu, sidebar and toolbar is enough (Muhammet)
   + agreed (Sascha)
   => WF

 * TOOLBAR: Handling of icon "borders" in the table toolbar should be improved
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113606
   + currently we _add_ borders with the buttons, the request is to _toggle_
     with the full preset with the advantage to highlight the current item
   + toggle is default in MSO (Sascha)
   + real presets that fully switch the borders would allow to use user-defined
     presets that can be shown in the widget (Heiko)
     + would be an overkill (Patrick)
   + move "no borders" to some other position
     and add the one missing button (3 vertical lines) and switch to
     toggle (Sascha)
   + toggle is more familiar to users and the drawback of the change, which
     is users cannot add horizontal plus vertical to get a grid, is
     neglectable (Heiko)
   + changing behavior seems to require a lot of effort (Muhammet, Patrick),
     adding the missing button could be done safely
   + we should check the new workflow before it is put into master (Patrick)
   + Maybe think about adding an alternative interaction that uses the current
     adding behavior; with Shift pressed the configuration will be added (Sasha)
      (Think about, if the UI can show the status properly then(Patrick))
   => go with it
