General discussion

* Discussion about dark colors
   + Fixing issues on macOS is important, see bug 118017


  * FIND & REPLACE: Should be possible to specify both a search expression
    and a style
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141439
    + can of worms (Heiko, Dave)
      + extension exists with AltSearch
    + support the idea of cascading criteria despite the extension (Thomas)
    + adding criterium with an easy to understand synthax e.g. <StyleName=Heading>
      would sattisfy advanced users (Sascha)
    + would made it possible to add MS Office syntax for addon-developer (Sascha)
    => do it

  * Inconsistency in Bringing forth the Page Style Window Using the
    Status Bar from LibreOffice Calc
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=136313
    + single click to open the page style, right-click for
      context menu (Thomas)
      + duplicating bug 87750 and bug 91914
    + agree to the idea that the status bar shouldn't open dialogs (Sascha)
      + millions of users might complain to removal (Sascha)
    => do it

  * Lock files and privacy (leaking user and computer name)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141026
    + very rare usecase but still reasonable request, also easy hack (Sascha)
    + user error but "Show Details" function easy to implement (Mike)

  * Enhancement: Default padding in LibreOffice Calc
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141864
    + default padding is the same as in Excel (Thomas)
      + second issue is a duplicate
    + larger cells improve human readablility
    -> rather change default row height than cell padding (Sascha)
    + maybe set options for default Height, Width to Options->Calc->Defaults 
    + could be done per default template
    => resolve duplicate

  * CROSS-REFERENCE DIALOG: Allow prefixing section-numbering reference
    with section symbol
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141429
    + no need for it (Dieter)
    + can't be part of the reference as it requires to be in the ODF
    + prefix not being part of the reference field is prone to fail
      when the reference changes
    => prefer a solution per extension
  * Rephrase "Insert Reference To" items
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141869
    => good ideas, easyhackable
  * Explain "Type" and "Insert Reference To" elements with tooltips
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141867
    + type is self-explanatory but insert reference worth to change (Thomas)
    => do it
