Present: Mike, Heiko
Comments: Aadi, Sophie, Olivier, Regina, Stuart


  * Expose "Allow animating images" at the UI
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=143202
  * A way to identify animating gif images inside a presentation (or draw)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=143201
    + stopping animations is possible via Accessibility setting (Aadi)
      + new position?
    + not seeing animated gif is a safety/security issue if disabled (Mike)
    + typically settings would be "show only once", "never", "always",
      "start/stop on click"
    + indicator could be a big gray triangle (as known from video players)
  => comment

  * Rename gradient 'border' label to something more meaningful
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=143282
    + Threshold, Boundary (Sophie)
    + "Offset" (Heiko) - sounds to me as "shifted somewhere" (Mike)
    + Border > "Distance to edge" (border is an area, a frame with some
      width) (Mike)
  * Rename gradient 'border' label to something more meaningful
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101731
    + Transition, Offset, Midpoint (Sophie, Olivier)
    + "Start/End extension" (Regina)
    + don't see a problem with "value" (Mike)
    + some indicator like a pointing arrow that shows up when hovering over
      the control in the UI would be helpful (Mike)
    + tooltips would be definitely helpful (Mike)
      + border/distance:
        "Defines the distance to the edge of the area where the gradient
         of the transparency starts. The border area itself will take the
         transparency from the edges of the gradient."
       + start/end value:
         "Percent of transparency at which the gradient starts/ends"
   => rename border, add tooltips, keep start/end

  * Spelling - Correct and Correct All is inappropriate
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=143287
    + is Change/All better than Correct/All?
    + bike shedding; correct is clear enough (Stuart)
    => agreed

  * Improve handling of configuring table borders in table properties
    dialog (to make it work for multiple workflows)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=143249
    + requirements/user stories first, mockup then
    + Benjamin wants to show a grid on the table.
    + Eve wants to configure the border style using potentially different
      attributes per side.
    + Eve wants to store a configuration and apply in other documents.
    + mockup at 
    + dislike the turn from 'configure a layout and apply that to one or more
      borders' into 'select where to apply, then do the modification'
    + multi-selection could be done per ctrl+click on the preview; drawback is
      that the attributes can be different, eg visible on/off, and the properties
      pane  should show the actual values
    + let's consider multiple selection per toggle button -> done in the mockup
    => share mockup on BZ
