Present: Maria, Sascha, Heiko
Comments: Dieter, Noel, Cor, Mike, Stuart, Adolfo


  * Row height in Calc was 0,45 cm now it's 0,4516
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144247
    + revert, have 4 digits only in case of imperial units, ...?
    + see also Bug 138920, assigned - maybe solvable
    + if not, revert the patch (Maria)
    => hopefully it can be fixed

  * Separation between start interactive frame not ok. I's hard
    to place cursor at the start of the paragraph with the mouse
    (depend on zoomlevel)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139591
    + NAB (Dieter, Heiko), accept sloppy interactions (Noel)
    + obvious to the user what happens and F2 goes into edit mode;
      but no objection if change is needed (Cor)
    + minor and artificial issue; click somewhere and use
      ctrl+pos1 (Heiko)
    + large scale change; effort not worth the little benefit (Maria)
    + same issue with lists or indexes (Sascha)
    => NAB/WF

  * Emoji font
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144348
    + update the font?
    + bad idea in the first place (Mike)
      + emoji handling is done best by the OS (Adolfo)
    + new font might require to update the references (Stuart()
    + patch to make the Emoji non-experimental was abandoned
    => WF, keep the current font

  * Password protection on Writer malfunctioning
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142147
    + proposing a PW prompt before Save*
    + purpose of ro is not to block saving but to keep the
      original document (Maria)
    + ctrl+a/c allows to copy/paste all (Sascha)
      + protection prevents changes but does not ensure its
        readonly via copy/paste or access to the document
        structure (Sascha)
      + storing the pw inside a non-encrypted file is an issue too
    + show the "readonly" infobar and edit/save after prompting
      for pw (Heiko)
    + auto tick the "Save with password" checkbox and let the
      user insert a pw or not in the next dialog (Maria)
    + use File > Properties: Security > Open file read-only for this
      kind of protection and remove the option from the
      save dialog (Sascha)
      + sometimes no pw is needed to open; feels broken (OP)
    => comment on BZ
