Present: Cor, Eyal, Heiko
Comments: Stuart, Mike, Ady, Ilmari


  * Replace string is empty
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154831
    + no need, WF (Stuart)
    + pro: common behavior, annoying to reselect, con: easy to do,
      danger of accidently replacing when just searching (Eyal)
    + last items are remembered but prefer to not auto select since
      destructive functions should be guarded (Cor, Heiko)
    => WF

  * The default width of Calc columns should be a bit narrower
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154788
    + change the default col width?
    + better use a proper template (Mike)
    + expected length should be taken into account (Ady)
    + Excel too narrow, 2cm more appealing but very much personal
      taste (Cor)
    => let's run a poll on social media

  * "Apply border and shadow" option should be removed from
    AutoCaption dialog
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154686
    + unclear function, no idea what it is good for (all)
    + blame anyone? (Eyal)- string dates back when the UI was
      created from previous *.src file
    + just hide/drop the UI control (Heiko)
    + prefer to dig into the issue aka bug (Cor)
    + charts apparently don't get the autocaption (Heiko)
    => bug, needsDevAdvice

  * UI: "augmented reality" hovering mode (immediate display of
    underlying formulas etc.)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=147326
    + maybe as extension (Ilmari)
    + use case a bit unclear, but seems not to be a frequent
      use case (Eyal)
    + would be a clumsy interaction; and very slow with the tooltip
      delay (Heiko)
    + tooltip would clash with Tools > Options > Calc > View >
      Formula Indicator and Hint (Heiko)
    + wonder if View > Value Highlighting is sufficient (Cor, Eyal)
    => ask OP if that sufficient
