Present: Sascha, Heiko
* FILEOPEN: easier access to scale drawings
+ add a Scale section to the statusbar showing the actual value and allow
to change per context menu
+ saving at the document could be handy (Sascha)
=> feedback/access per statusbar
* UI: [Enhancement] Option to keep cursor vertically centered in viewport
+ ideally add a command for customization and perhaps assign it
to scroll lock; should be shown in the statusbar
+ maybe good for an extension; definitely low priority (Sascha)
+ what happens at document end? activate the direct cursor mode?
what on jump via Navigator
what if the position is occupied by an object?
=> recommend to resolve WF but if someone volunteers...
* Page naming "right" and "left" is wrong for right-to-to left documents
should be "odd" and "even"
+ see also bug 94847
+ left/right has no meaning and even/odd would have been better
+ but changing left/right to even/odd has a many consequences, eg.
header/footer "same content on..."
+ hinting for l10n might be a solution in some cases but irritate
people who switch between languages
=> agreement to the change
* UI: Footnote area in Tools _> Footnotes and endnotes not self-explaining
+ anything unclear in respect to comment 2?
+ labels are not self-explanatory (Sascha)
+ change "Text area" and "Footnote area" to
"Text marker" and "Footnote marker"
=> do it easyhackable
* Add 4 more default bullet types to toolbar split button and dialog
+ what bullets/numbering schemes exactly should we use?
+ see also bug 120905 (revamp the dialog) and attachment to bug 140612
+ provide better bullets (Andreas)
+ more items don't solve the issue of bad presets and configurability
(neither when improving the presets)
+ preferably we have a kind of favorite function and users can pick
the best eight out of unlimited and self-made list styles (Heiko)
+ small-screen users want small widgets (Sascha)
=> no objection when the bullets are improved but better revamp
the dialog than adding more items
* func keyword entry on Elements pane should insert a function name
suggesting user to modify it
+ func <?>(<?>) is hard to understand
+ func <name>(<?>) is not localizable
+ but since this function is likely used by experts and the terminology
is well-known this solution hurts less
=> go for it
