Present: Tristan, Heiko (Rizal, Aneta)
Comments: Stuart, Mike, Roman


  * Preview using Conditional Formatting has weird behavior when multiple
    cells are selected
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150448
    + use a static text like "42", "Sample", or "Preview"
    + alternatively, we show only the first n values from the selection
      + pointless in case of T,T,T,F,T,F,F,T,F,F... or the like
    + so show the first n categories
      + probably some effort to implement for little benefit
    + prefer the static text "This is a preview" (Tristan)
    => do it

  * Title case setting for style headings capitalizes 'and'
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=121913
    + it's actually "Capitalize Every Word" but affects also excluded words
      like mRNA and iPhone (see also bug 121779)
    => forward the question to the developers

  * Document Recovery UX can be improved
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150428
    + unclear if is it really popping up at the wrong time (Heiko)
    + to be confirmed by QA, needsDevAdvice for possible improvements

  * Drop separate docking Elements window, and use Sidebar instead
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150489
    + remove the left elements pane in Math (Stuart, Mike)
    + keep it to have it parallel to other tabs (Roman)
    + more modern design; and not many useful interactions on the
      other tabs (Heiko)
    => do it, and see if users complain

  * Freeze XXX commands in tabbed interface appear twice
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150471
    + keep first col/row as quick interactions (Heiko)
    => do it
