Comments: Eike, Eyal, Mike, Kabilo, Stephane


  * Allow entering textbox edit mode with single click instead
    of double-click
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=153749
    + ideally we consistently implement single click to activate
      the (text box) object vs. double click to enter the edit mode
    + Impress/Draw has the option General > Allow quick editing (Heiko)
    + Excel works as requested and single click goes into edit mode and
      one has to grab the frame to move (Hossein)
    + bad idea for charts as it results in unintentional editing (Eike)
      + see also bug 141841
    + oppose to change the global default and opposing a quick editing
      mode for charts (Eyal)
    => implement as an option, off by default for Calc and Writer, and
       on for Impress/Draw as of today

  * Writer - protected section - allow to insert content into fields
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154808
    + fields provide important features, also useful for templates (Mike)
    + one use case is to hide sections but don't delete (Kabilo)
    + unclear how to protect (Eyal)
      + in the field dialog per "[ ] Ignore protection" or
      + in the section dialog next to "[ ] Editable in read-only documents"
        per "[ ] Keep fields editable in case of protection"
    + use case is weak; the field to control hidden parts does not need
      to be in a protected section (Heiko, Hossein)
    => plenty of options, rather not do it

  * UI: Remediate frustration of unclear style names in style-name
    picklist contexts
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=155054
    + picklist / dropdown should show hierarchy (OP, Eyal)
    + WF because of the Automatic filter option (Heiko)
    + trees are complex UI elements and detrimental to usability (Heiko)
    + request could be solved with some kind of alias; although
      the current situation is fine (Hossein)
    => resolve WF

  * "Growing Liberty" Impress template has a slide of unclear
    (suspicious for advertizing) nature in the end
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=155390
    + keep last slide with icons, +1 (Rania, Laurent)
    + provide icons rather per Gallery, -1 (Eyal)
    + credits look like advertising, -1 (Mike, Heiko, Hossein)
    => remove the slide (1 page)

  * Make "Level" spinbox into a dropdown menu in the Document tab
    of "Insert - Field"
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154052
    + agree with the suggestion (Stephane, Heiko, Hossein)
    + don't mind if direct editing remains possible (Eyal)
    => do it
