General discussion

* Welcome to the design team, Maria!
    + What we do, how we work, why it is fun


  * Make cell border dropdown from Sidebar available for Toolbar
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141774
    + not much advantage better focus on bug 11360 (Heiko)
    + agree, also Calc Sidebar picker is "buggy" mixing toggle
      and add as standard option (Sascha)
    + quite some spacing between items (Heiko)
    + not needed because because too many options, would
      be nice to have user-defined configurations (Maria)
    => recommend to not do but keep the ticket

  * UI: Tab of visible sheet looks the same as other selected tabs
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=132470
    + revert and make active sheet label bold?
    + changing the color for selected sheet is unappealing as we
      support sheet colors; suggest black borders for all selected
      sheets and bold text + black borders for active sheet (Sascha)
      + border as in frame?
    => make font bold again

  * LO Writer: in dialog for insertion of cross-reference, allow
    user to filter for the number of the target
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=141777
    + currently we filter per *<foo>* and the request is to do
    + no big deal, user can always specify by longer text (Sascha)
    + makes sense only for numbers (Heiko)
    => comment and keep ticket

  * LO colors theme: dark mode: use darker document background color
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142172
    + too much contrast with white on full black (Stuart)
    + rather use a darker application background color and a slightly
      lighter document background that has a good contrast with
      white text (Sascha)
    => WF

  * EDITING: Request ability to configure text export used when pasting
    plain text
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=74247
    + optional clipboard delimiter like space makes pasting a pain
      but how about a "special copy" dialog?
      + unclear how this affect pasting, ie. spaces as delimiter
        could always evoke the text import dialog
    + how about a makro that reads all entries out of a table and list
      them down in plain text? to rare use case to clutter the UI (Sascha)
    => WF for the in-program solution; realize this per extension
