Comments: Thomas, Stuart, Mike, Dieter, Gerhard, Eyal


  * Column width dialog doesn't allow setting width of all columns at once
    Columns tab of Table Properties dialog doesn't allow setting width of
    all columns to same value
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145738
    + the command Distribute Columns Evenly does the trick (Gerhard)
    + then have it at the dialog too (Eyal)
      + clutters the UI further (Heiko)
    + Adjust Column Width proportionally works well, after Adapt Table
      Width is checked for not full-size table, allowing to have 'remaining
      space'; unclear why the dialog should size proportionally as new
      tables are created accordingly (Heiko)
    => resolve WF

  * Column tab of Table Properties dialog is confusing and frustrating
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145739
    + help is sufficient (Gerhard)
    + many tickets around this topic (Heiko)
    => keep this ticket for the UI revamp task

  * Ability to forbid the use of direct formatting
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53847
    + idea has some benefits (Thomas)
    + per MUFFIN/Notebookbar (Stuart)
    + per template/extension (Heiko)
    + done via "Formatting (Styles)" toolbar (requires to manually
      disable the other toolbars (Heiko)
      + does not cover all UI elements incl. sidebar (Thomas)
    + implement UNO commands to modify style-level character and
      paragraph properties first (bug 107865) (Thomas)
    => no further input, removing needsUXEval keyword

  * add Comments field to Styles
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145518
    + good idea (Mike, Dieter)
    + recommend to show the comment eventually per tooltip at
      the Stylist; so the text should be short
    => do it

  * Improvement - PDF export defaults in Options/General
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=54052
    + OP asks not for a particular option but rather all as default values
    + PDF documents are expected as different from each other, ie. one
      requires option A while the other needs B (Heiko)
    => resolve WF
