Present: Bogan (muted), Heiko
Comments: Sascha, Adolfo, Roman, Mike, Stuart


  * The Gallery popup option "Insert as Background" should appear
    only in Writer
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144201
    + fix it for Draw/Impress or remove completely
    => remove

  * Horizontal Ruler Comments button issue if in Zoom Factor Optimal
    or Fit Width
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144419
    + relying on this button makes no sense, eradicate it (Sascha)
      + requires a solution anyway (Adolfo)
    + View > Comments toggles the comments pane visibility
      and adjusts the optimal zoom accordingly (Heiko)
    + optimal means to hide the pane when collapsed
    => resolve WF

  * Writer: No "Settings" or "Advanced" button in a "Insert footnote"
    dialog window
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144722
    + agree (Roman)
    + rather introduce resp. refer to different footnote style (Dave)
      + reasonable argument but too many design variants clutter the
        list of styles; and more relevant not all foot/endnote options
        are paragraph style attributes (Heiko)
    + having a shortcut to the configuration dialog makes sense (Mike)
    => do it

  * [ACCESSIBILITY] Copy object caption contents to object name,
    alt and description
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144375
    + makes sense in particular for a11y request in bug 39558 (Stuart)
    + name is not random and used in the Navigator, description is
      meant for sources or similar additional information (Heiko)
    + for the alternative text it improves a11y but implementation
      should consider to not change existing text
    => do it

  * Paste Special Comments and Text conflict
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=139858
    + workaround to add-paste comment only could be to use the
      add option (Heiko)
      + not intuitive (John)
    + paste special /formats and /objects (anchored to cell) only
      does exactly what is requested and makes the content bold,
      for example, while numbers and comment remains intact
    + same happens the other way around and when pasting numbers only
      into a cell with formatting or attached object those stay alive
    => treat comments as formula or objects and keep cell content
