Comments: Mike, Andre, Stuart


  * [Character styles] Make more clear that the font used is from
    the paragraph style
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=153623
    + part of bug 88559 "Display of inherited attributes from parent
      styles in Styles dialog" (Mike)
    + visual clue that an attribute has not been explicitly set
      or unset is needed (Andre)
    + show an indicator on altered attributes (Eyal)
      + could be similar to system settings at KDE (Heiko)
    + not showing the actual attributes from the PS is a bug (Eyal, John)
    + changing the character format inline for multiple paragraphs empties
      the varying fields, which is easy to follow; otherwise it takes the value
      from the PS, again easy to understand
    => comment

  * WRITER: Can't define a character style for Regular font variant
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=155113
    + starting from a PS with italic font, this attribute is taken into
      the CS and can be changed into regular, meaning it could be solved
      with the above (Heiko)
    + there are some reasons to create a CS not based on any PS (Eyal)
    + show the indicator in a greyed-out appearance if an attribute is
      changed and allow to make this sticky; clicking on the indicator toggles
      from on to off (removing individual attributes from a style)
    => easy to understand

  * Remove (or change functionality and label) of "Default" button
    in Styles tab of Insert Index dialog (see c1,c6,c7)
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=153653
    + decision for c6 & c7 needed (renaming proposals)
    + make style selection likewise the B&N dialog (Eyal)
      + does not work as this dialog has way less attributes to assign
    => go with context menus and maybe a trashbin-symbol in the middle
       for the factory setting

  * I want to choose my Notebookbar without changing my whole User Interface
    + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=148123
    + merits as MUFFIN proposal (Stuart)
    + power users may like this, average users don't need it (John)
    + if the UI is customized (Notebookbar + Toolbars) it should
      be persistent (John)
    + menubar on/off is remembered
    + low priority (Eyal)
    => fix the bug
