  * No option to select "Delete Comment" via a letter press in the
    context menu
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154389
    + quick way to solve is to assign any mnemonic and require
      user to press it twice
    + better solution would be to improve the auto assignment algorithm
      to find some key
      + better solution (Gabby)
    + using the main menu would be _Sheet > Cell _Comments > _Delete Comment
      + the issue happens only for the context menu
    => fix it programmatically

  * Add option to use approximate/fuzzy string matching to whole
    of dictionary + word completion for more aggressive autocorrection
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125433
    + add option "auto correct typos up to n letter"
      + probably not the right approach since typos mix letters like
        Borwser => Browser
    + we do not have probability for the suggestions and cannot decide
      if autocorrect would be appropriate
    => desirable function, up to developers to figure out how to do

  * Improve Calc's Format > Align Text menu's contents and labels
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154410
    + toolbar buttons work as expected and reverting a toggle state
      brings back the default alignment
    + the menu seems to be a toggle function too but cannot untoggle
    + "Default" would be some kind opf radio button functionality
      and not the toggle on/off anymore; it opens Pandora's box for all
      the menus with on/off attributes
    => fix the menu problem but don't add a Default item

  * FORMATTING: "Keep aspect ratio" checkbox of images or photos
    not always honoured
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=80281
    + proportional scaling for images is enabled when using the
      mouse and we should do the same when working with the dialog
    + check "Keep ratio" in the Position & Size dialog by default
      for images (Gabby)
    => do it

  * Change label for .uno:InsertIndexesEntry and label and tooltip
    for .uno:IndexEntryDialog
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=153847
    + proposal is Insert Index Entry, and it was solved meanwhile
    => thanks for the work
