Present: Heiko
Comments: Ezinne, Miguel, Ady, Eyal, Regina, Roman


  * Add an option to warn when autofill overwrites existing data
    (turned off by default)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150739
    + appreciate a warning (Ezinne)
      + we have an advanced option (Miguel)
      + we must not interrupt the workflow with a messagebox (Heiko)
    + potential solution in bug 154466 "Overwriting data warnings
      should be an undo notice, not confirm dialog (UX)"
      + message could interrupt too (Ady)
      + but the infobar doesn't (ideally disappearing after some
        seconds) (Heiko)
    => show an infobar with the option to Undo

  * FIELD DIALOG: Add possibility to assign character style to the field
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=153537
    + fields shouldn't be formatted at all (Eyal)
    => resolve as WF

  * Improvement of CALC diagrams
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=147232
    + uncomfortable to work with a diagram which is up to 200 x 90 cm
    + Export as PNG allows to change the image size / dpi (Regina)
    + scaling labels could be done with a chart style changing the
      font size from 12pt to 6pt for example, see bug 62925 or
      bug 90490 (Heiko)
    + excluding the wall to have the exact size of the (inner) diagram
      is possible manually but might be a valuable enhancement
    + however, it's not clear if this is needed so we better resolve WF
    => WF

  * Rename Presentation Styles to Drawing Style
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154492
    + presentation styles are used in the master view primarily (Regina)
      + but changing the background color or the bullets is always
        possible (Heiko)
    + renaming might be an option but it would still be used as a style
      + disagree with renaming (Roman)
    + changing master attributes in the normal edit mode is a desired
      feature; it is understood as a style and changing the name wont
      alter workflow or design
    + the documentation could deserve some improvement, see
    => forward to documentation
