  * UI: Context Menu does not appear if user clicks on the top-left sheet corner
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=145201
    + WF (Timur), alternative ways (Regina)
    + no objection to have some menu there, ideally configured so non-matching
      options for all cells (eg sparklines, merge) are hidden
    + but low priority
    => go for it

  * Changing right page margin changes horizontal scrolling position
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=151041
    + it's clear what's happening, WF (Stuart)
    + if we keep the view constant it should be always (Heiko)
    + It would make little sense to hold the vcl canvas view on
      a part of the page that no longer has any importance to
      inputting textual content. (Stuart)
    => needsDevAdvice

  * Protected status only is pasted if the source cells belong to one row
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150910
    + bug 123974 has the opposite expectations (Eike)
    + difference between single/multiple selection
      + pasting single protected cell into an unprotected area makes this
        cell protected
      + pasting at least two cells makes the target unprotected
      + it doesn't matter if one of the cell is unprotected or all
        are protected
    + decision on bug 123974 c10 was to "removing the protected state only
      if a) the sheet is protected, and b) the target cell is unprotected"
    => this should apply to multiple selections too and whether the flag is
      set or not needs to be decided per cell

  * Confusing radio button placement in Text flow tab of Table Properties dialog
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=151002
    + appreciate labels (Roman)
    + suggest a flipped layout additionally (Tuomas)
      + don't see the advantage (Heiko)
    => do it
