Comments: Rafael, Eike, Tuomas, Mike, Cor, Eyal


  * Confusing language in Similarity Search
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150693
    + "Number of different/additional/additional characters" or
      "Different/Larger/Shorter by [ ] characters"; tooltips are helpful
       in case of ambiguous labels (Rafael)
    + algorithm is Levenshtein and suggestion is not an improvement (Eike)
    + shorter labels are better, so having "character" as a "unit"
      an improvement (Mayu)
    => let's do it / easyhack

  * "Text-to-text" is hard to understand
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150694
    + "Oversized and undersized characters" (Tuomas)
    + "Character alignment" (Rafael)
    + "Vertical character alignment", "Vertical alignment of characters" (Eyal)
      + small label is way too long
    + don't mind text-to-text; again better to keep it short (Mayu)
    + "Vertical character alignment" for the bold title and maybe
      "Position" (Heiko)
    => do it / easyhack

  * Ctrl+Q should close documents, not exit LibreOffice
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150721
    + show a confirmation box on ctrl+Q (Stuart)
    + with "[x] Confirm before quitting with Ctrl+Q"
    + unlike Firefox and similar tool we have confirmation dialogs about unsaved
      changes; and a second confirmations would be annoying
    + MSO has no Exit at all, Close at the last document terminates the app
      (like ctrl+W / alt+F4 does for LibreOffice)
    + not an issue; and documents are saved (Cor, Mayu)
    => resolve WF

  * There should be a way to manually update fixed date / time
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150751
    + introduce a function to "Update Fields (Fix)"?
    + fix is fix, WF (Mike)
    + do not change (Cor, Mayu)
    + add a "Format value" or "Show formatted value" field type (Eyal)
    => resolve WF
