Present: Cor, Heiko
Comments: Roman, Rafael, Stuart, Tristan, Wolfgang, Eike


  * Rename character style "source text"
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150619
    + go with "Monospaced" (Rafael)
    + merge "Source Text, Teletype, User Entry" into "Source Code" (Stuart)
    + use either "Source Code Style" or "Typewriter Style" (Tristan)
    + like "Typewriter" (without style) (Heiko)
    + prefer "Monospace" (Cor)
    => do it and try to remove unnecessary CS

  * "Copy version information" button in About dialog should have
    description label
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=143994
    + implemented intentionally as icon-only button (Roman, Heiko)
    + tooltip is sufficient (Cor)
    => WF/NAB

  * LineStartName / LineEndName "Symmetric Arrow" vanished
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=149917
    + equilateral triangle with the expectable directions,
      asked for in https://ask.libreoffice.org/t//79362I for a macro (Wolfgang)
    + reading bug 126648 it seems we renamed Symmetric Arrow to Arrow Short
    + macros may rely on a certain style and we should investigate if some
      solution per code (Cor)
      + Only then we can judge if it is reasonable to solve (somehow) or not...
      + strongly against such a restriction to keep _any random_ style; even with
        some code solution we cannot update the design
    + relying on some style (that can be deleted by the user, btw) or any other
      volatile content is wrong here; the mentioned macro needs to be written
      more carefully (Heiko)
    => reopen, comment, needsDevAdvice

  * CSV (Text) import dialog: Improve discoverability of Column type setting
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150652
    + a) keep label enabled, b) auto select first column, c) show down arrow,
      d) show a static tip, e) switch from Standard to Text... (Heiko)
    + switching to Text has been refused; power users wants to load data without
      interruption (Mike)
    + a) makes sense, all the rest is not needed (Cor)
    => recommend to do a) (easyhackable), no strong objection against c)

  * [UI][RFE] clearly visible hint or tooltip when entering a non-number
    Conditional Formatting condition
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150271
    + "+" is just no valid input, not much we can do (Eike)
    + corner case, let's keep it as it is (Cor)
    + to allow complex input such as formulas makes no sense (Heiko)
    => resolve WF/NAB
