  * GALLERY: Option to add files to a "Favourites" theme in gallery
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=151222
    + current workflow is to create a special category "Favorites"
      and copy the interesting items into it (Regina)
    + Gallery management is clunky and Favorites is widely used (Cor, John)
    + having another route to Gallery items would be orthogonal to the existing
      path and confusing (Heiko)
    + adding the Favorite tagging mechanism wont block improvements to the
      Gallery (Cor)
    + could be shown in the list likewise the categories but on top and separated
      with a ruler; creating a category with the same name would end up in
      "Favorite 1"; renaming and deletion needs to be blocked (Heiko)
    => comment

  * Size submenu of table selection context menu not clear enough
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=151284
    + command labels usually start with an action like "Insert *" (Eyal)
    + "Optimize Size" (Rafael)
    + "Height and Width" (Cor)
    + just "Size" is reasonable (John, Cor)
    + "Resize Row/Column" (Eyal)
      + works but is lengthy
      + just "Resize" (John)
      + hard to translate in German, Dutch.. (Heiko)
    => better stick with the existing term, WF

  * Consider adding "Move to Top" and "Move to Bottom" buttons under effects list
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=151345
    + Move To Top/Button a not a requirement (Stuart)
    + tend to agree with WF but if the commands "move up/down" (as existing)
      and "to top/bottom" (as requested) could be added to the
      context menu (Heiko)
    + seldom use case, cluttering the UI, dragging is possible (Cor)
    + planning to change the UI anyway (Effects go into an expander) (Heiko)
    + competitor don't have it either, so prolly no big need (John)
    => WF

  * Need mechanism for re-centering "Slides pane" onto current slide with
    edit focus
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=151170
    + statusbar shows the number of the current slide and the sorter has a clear
      indicator but not when the focus changes eg after clicking the white space
      at the slide sorter
    + UNO action to scroll the pane would be very helpful (Stuart)
    + sounds like feature creep to me and extends the UNO API unnecessarily;
      having a "toolbar" (some button next to close) would be acceptable but
      ideally a more natural interaction like automatically refocus when
      items are edited, which is the fact today (Heiko)
    + alternatively we could just avoid loosing the focus; ie. no white space
      in the slide sorter (Heiko)
    + always show the currently active slide at the status bar (John)
    => recommend to modify the ticket goal

  * New Paste Special Operations: Maximum, Minimum
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=151205
    + afraid of a bottomless pit (Rafael), no use case (Roman)
    + plenty of space, do it (Eyal)
    + in case we have even more options it could go into a dropdown (Rafael)
      + strongly disagree; we should keep it as simple as needed (Heiko)
    + use case: Tracking a set of measurements where there is no need to keep the
      history of measurements, only the last value and the "best" value to date
    + don't get the use case, but seems to be completely different to what
      we have (Cor)
    + seems to be very advanced; too niche = WF (John)
    => recommend to realize per extension
