Present: Alexandr, Heiko
Comments: Rafael, Mike


  * Autofilter settings being reset in some cases
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117276
    + changing the autofilter behavior needs food reason (Heiko)
    + selecting all items *shown* in the list resets the autofilter -> bug (Mike)
    => fix the bug, keep behavior similar to Excel

  * Allow multi-cursor editing with block selection
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=96032
    + block selection exists and works well with both mouse and keyboard
    + blocks can be deleted but not content added at all selected positions
      like known from text editors
    => WF because out of scope

  * Cryptic messages for average user on macro errors
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=146176
    + "The macro Standard:Module1.macronotfound not found.
      Please check whether all files are placed at the right position" (Heiko)
    + "The Basic macro Standard.Module1.macronotfound could not be found.
       The macro is expected to be located at: /n Location: Document /n
       Library: Standard /n Module: Module 1 /n Macro name: macronotfound (Rafael)
    => follow Rafael's suggestion

  * Context menus in Formula Bar and in cell's own Edit mode should
    be unified (as much as possible)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=146023
    + switch uno:SelectAll and uno:InsertSymbol at the formulabar.xml
    + some other places are inconsistent too
    => do it

  * Quickly insert check boxes
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=146215
    + we have a check mark bullet symbols
    + checking the bullet is not possible as we are restricted to ODF
    + having a convenient way / wizard to generate forms is desirable
    => move to extension
