Comments: Adolfo, Eyal, Stuart, Ilmari


  * Popup dialog boxes for Arrow Style tab should use consistent terminology with
    the main Arrow style tab
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=148736
    + duplicate of:
  * Improve label and tooltip for Arrow Styles icon in Drawing Objects Properties
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=148737
    + arrowhead -> arrow style
    + worried about overloading the term style (Adolfo)
    + "styles" are everywhere in the dialog and at the toolbar, needs to
      clean-up (Cor)
    + arrowhead is indeed inconsistent with the source being arrow style (Heiko)
    + toolbar
    => preferably we find better names for all "style" items but meanwhile
       the simple patch is not bad

  * Graphics objects not replaced/overwritten when Paste is used on the marked
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91147
    + pasting a shape onto another does not delete but in case of an image
      it does
    + not a regression (Ilmari)
    + shape don't overwrite other objects - by design, but images must not -> bug
    => comment and make it a bug regarding images

  * Make "Auto Spellcheck" a module-level or document-level option
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=148848
    + +1 for having it module specific, -1 for document level (Eyal, Stuart, Cor)
    => accepted

  * Add to list: unable to 'detected' a list directly below/or above.. you always
    need to place cursor in the list
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=148798
    + automatic detection vs. flexibility
    + confusion reported in bug 140579 resolved fixed with reference to
      documentation by Dieter
    + "Add To List" assigns the list before to the current paragraph; having one
      item - the very first before the list - behave differently and become added
      to the next list would be inconsistent; but using the ctrl key modifier
      makes the function very flexible and does the trick
    + only alternative is to have two functions, "add to list before" and
      "...after", which needs to be enabled depending on the document structure;
      drawback here is the complexity and the unclear default
    => NAB/recommend to not enhance

  * "Previous / Next Page" shortcuts do not match the tooltips on the navigator
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=142834
    + no issue (Cor, Heiko)
    => resolve WF/NAB
