Present: Eyal, Heiko
Comments: Timur, Miklos, Stuart, Regina, Cor


  * Should be able to permanently delete comments with track changes enabled
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115645
    + deletion is contrary track changes (Timur)
    + rather accept deletion (Miklos)
    + add "Remove All Deleted Comments" (Timur, Cor)
      + placed in the context menu and visible only when TC is on
    => go for it

  * In Draw the Ctrl+M shortcut should create a New Page as in Impress
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=151108
    + use a different shortcut for new slides in Impress
    + ctrl+alt+M (Stuart, Regina, Cor)
    + ctrl+alt+N would fit the action better (Eyal, Heiko)
    + mnemonic is alt+L/P+N (Stuart)
      + ctrl+shift+M (Stuart) - ctrl+alt+N opens the template manager
    => change the shortcut for new slide/page

  * Print Dialog: list of available paper size is unsorted list (no logic at all)
    and has duplicate A4 paper size
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=151136
    + alphabetical sorting likely fails the task (Heiko, Eyal)
    + sorting comes from the printer target, see FAX with A0..6 spread across the
      options (Heiko), sorting might be possible anyway
    + U.S. uses Ledger, Tabloid, Legal, Letter with many variants, see
    + if we sort it has to be manually as well to not mix various US and European
      sizes; which would be just another sorting making, => NOB (Heiko)
    + would sort by one dimension and separate the different systems (Eyal)
    + "Microsoft XPS Document Writer" reports duplicates
      -> confirmed, and it would be good to remove those
    => comment on the ticket, needsDevEval

  * Font (family) selection UI elements should allow searching by substring
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=151119
    + type "Foo" and find all *Foo* fonts rather than Foo* as of today
    + use case "Libre Gothic", "Noto Gothic", "Gothic MS", "My Gotic Font"
    + suggestion applies primarily to the dialog (Eyal)
      + typing into thje font name field would filter the list below
    + sounds like a reasonable enhancement (Cor, Heiko)
    + doing the same for dropdown controls is desirable (Eyal) but means
      to change the behavior completely since currently we just autocomplete
      and have to filter otherwise; remember other tickets that suggest
      this (Heiko)
    => do it
