  * Sentence case not undone when cycling case
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144853
    + a) no sentence case formatting if there is no selection
    + b) select the whole sentence before applying case cycling
    + c) store each case format operation in the undo stack
      + WFM and should be the fact anyway
    + an automatic selection would be contra-productive because is force
      to adapt users to the behavior of the application (Sascha)
    + the ideal behavior would be as OP suggest, only change current word
      if no selection is done (Sascha)
    => cycle the word without selection

  * direct formatting of "character locale" cannot be cleared
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145118
    + have the choice of what is affected by clear DF
      or just purge everything with the alternative command
    + prefer an alternative command to clear all DF as it would be
      an endless subject of discussions of what or what not has
      to be cleared (Sascha)
    + better keep shortcuts simple without adding dialogs (Sascha)
    => w/o a complete list of attributes it makes no sense to
       ponder over a dialog; better hard-clean the formatting

  * Remove option "Word justify" from FontWork toolbar
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145092
    + blocks bug 144190
    => no further opinion, do it
  * _Left Align and _Right Align should be Align _Left and Align _Right
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144190
    => request from l10n, go ahead with renaming

  * Writer Navigator: Add a toggle button to Expand entries / Show only
    top-level items
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144999
    + introduce an action to collapse all? the opposite to expand all
      makes not much sense, so the function would be somehow half-cooked
    + prefer individual persistent toggles per category (David)
    + many other applications do similar and offer expend/collapse all
     for long lists (Sascha)
    + collapse on each root node; patch submitted by Jim and
      accepted by OP (Rafael)
    => submit
