Comments: Stuart, Sophie


  * UI: Sidebar Styles follow active document across all windows
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142720
    + Navigator has document1..n or active in the dropdown, so it is
      possible to keep the view at the current document (Sascha)
    + possible use case: one, detached Stylist applies to many open document;
      but this doesn't work since the undocked frame becomes hidden when
      switching the app and replaced on next activation
    => needs to be changed

  * Snap-to-grid button should be on more toolbars, optionally or by default
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=143055
    + makes sense (Stuart)
    + Writer has Snap below Show Grid in the menu (on the toolbar without
      a button to show the grid this command makes not much sense)
    + Draw/Impress: no .uno:UseGrid in main menu > View > Grid
      + weird to not see it
    + have Snap together with Show on Draw/Impress but not the other
      modules, where the menu is sufficient (Sascha)
    => do it

  * UI: optional filter for 'Language' dropdown in 'Character' dialog
    to show only most sensible language choices
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=85449
    + show the top five languages and have a "more" button (Heiko)
    + all language are important (Sophie)
    + show only the languages that are installed by application option,
      however user may paste content in alien languages (Sascha)
      + unclear what "installed language" means, and it could be the
        unexpected when for example the locale language is not contained
    + Sorting could help; could be done depending on region/locale (Sascha)
    + or just WF because you can search for the language by typing (Heiko)
    => comment, keep

  * Add an Accessibility sidebar
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142978
    + realize per extension (Stuart, Sascha, Heiko)
    => resolve wf/moved

  * Page numbers not removed from ToC when saved to HTML
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14272
    + HTML shows no page number when using Export but does with Save,
      epub removes the ToC completely (Heiko)
    => drop the page number
